“Somebody has got to represent the working-class and the middle-class of this country in standing up to the big-money interests who have so much power over the economic and political life of this country.” That’s from Bernie Sanders, the progressive firebrand and independent senator from Vermont who recently hinted at a possible 2016 presidential bid. Friday, from 7-10pm, tune in to hear Sanders in conversation with The Nation’s John Nichols in Northhamption, Massachusetts, as they hash out ways to get money out of our politics and renewing a grassroots democracy that will serve us all. 

This event is sponsored by The Nation and co-sponsored by Progressive Democrats of America, and WHMP AM/FM.
