The Impact of the 2018 Elections: Looking Ahead
Webinar of the CCDS Socialist Education Project
Nov. 26, 8:30 -10:30 Eastern time, 7:30-9:30 Central time.
The Democratic Party regained control of the US House of Representatives and numerous state and local offices but lost ground in the US Senate. There was a huge voter turnout, and a record number of women won office including younger women of color and open socialists. Is the progressive voice now stronger within the Democratic Party? What is the future direction of the Party and how can the Left and the people’s movements have influence? How does all of this shape up for the Trump resistance and the opening dynamics for the 2020 presidential election?
A special two-hour edition will examine these and other questions resulting from the historic 2018 elections. There will be presentations and reports, followed by discussion.
- Steve Cobble — co-founder of Progressive Democrats of America and associate fellow of the Institute for Policy Studies, Washington DC.
- Donna Dewitt — president emeritus of AFL-CIO of South Carolina, and activist in women’s issues and single payer health care
- Kathy Sykes — Representative in Mississippi House of Representatives, longtime civil and immigrant rights activist of Jackson NAACP
- CCDS members from around the country, and other invited Left and socialist speakers.
