Draft Bernie National Organizing Call – 6/16/17

The movement for a people’s party took it to the next level at the People’s Summit this weekend! The action began with a large gathering of Draft Bernie supporters from across the country on Friday morning, where Jimmy Dore lead the chant, “Draft Bernie! Draft Bernie!” It culminated with hundreds of enthusiastic supporters cheering for Bernie to start a new party in front of thousands of attendees and hundreds of thousands of livestream viewers back home. On this call, we recapped the weekend’s remarkable events, looped listeners into organizing, and discussed how we will move boldly into a people’s party. Brian Jones, the executive director of the Justice Party, joined us and shared his wealth of knowledge on progressive third parties.
