Creating a Progressive America

Creating a Progressive America

In a collaboration between The Nation and On The Earth Productions, progressive luminaries discuss the current state of affairs, the potential for a national escalation in social unrest and the future for a new progressive agenda.


As the economic recovery stagnates and Washington leadership devolves into petty dysfunction, America’s longstanding power structures appearincreasingly unable to sustain themselves. In a new series of videos produced in collaboration between The Nation and On The Earth Productions and recorded at the 10th Annual Fighting Bob Fest in Madison, Wisconsin, Cornel West, Senator Bernie Sanders, Jim Hightower, Thom Hartmann and other progressive luminaries discuss the the potential for a national escalation in social unrest—and the need for an innovative new progressive agenda.

Check back each Wednesday for new videos in this series.

Dear reader,

I hope you enjoyed the article you just read. It’s just one of the many deeply-reported and boundary-pushing stories we publish everyday at The Nation. In a time of continued erosion of our fundamental rights and urgent global struggles for peace, independent journalism is now more vital than ever.

This month, we’re kicking off an ambitious Summer Fundraising Campaign with the goal of raising $15,000. With your support, we can continue to produce the hard-hitting journalism you rely on to cut through the noise of conservative, corporate media. Please, donate today.

A better world is out there—and we need your support to reach it.
