Nation National Affairs Correspondent John Nichols joined Katrina vanden Heuvel and had a vital conversation about the future of the fight for equality and justice. Watch the recording below.

Could talk of a Green New Deal move from a speaker’s platform to the program of government and then to the reality of a nation?

Nation National Affairs Correspondent John Nichols offers possible answers in his hotly anticipated new book The Fight for the Soul of the Democratic Party.
