  2. Ben Schreiber, senior political strategist with Friends of the Earth, discusses his group’s response to the Senate confirmation of Scott Pruitt to be EPA administrator, the recent release of emails exposing his close relationship with the fossil fuel industry while he served as Oklahoma’s Attorney General, and how environmental groups plan to counter the Trump/Pruitt plan to broadly dismantle EPA regulations.
  3. Our Revolution’s Executive director Shannon Jackson assesses the results of Saturday’s election for Democratic National Committee chair where Rep. Keith Ellison lost to former Labor Secretary Tom Perez, and how his group’s work fits into the widespread protest and activism seen across the U.S. in opposition to Donald Trump and his administration’s reactionary agenda.
  4. Tom Swan, Executive Director of the Connecticut Citizen Action Group talks about CCAG’s 2017 legislative agenda, the recent DUE Justice Coalition’s “It’s Not Too Late to Have a Heart” action — and the special elections scheduled for Tuesday, 2/28/17 in the 2nd & 32nd Senate Districts and the 115th State House District.
