      Fellow Karine Jean-Pierre “The MoveOn Model: Grassroots Activism & a Progressive Network” (Guests: Anna Galland & Ilya Sheyman)

      MoveOn is a national organization that has grown in the past 20 years to have a massive political impact and to amplify the voices of a nationwide network of activists and concerned citizens. Yet, the organization continues to evolve and innovate, especially in the Trump era. How do you build an inspiring, effective political organization? How do you empower and organize local activists into an effective national network? From protecting reproductive rights with the ACLU to holding the Trump Administration accountable with MoveOn, Jean-Pierre is experienced in leading grassroots campaigns in a variety of contexts and will discuss the tactics used to successfully organize a (the) resistance.
