We have a special show tonight. We are honored to have Peter Schurman of Free Speech For People to discuss their new report “The Growing Trans-partisan Opposition To Citizens United”. We will also have Jay Kasturi, Rockie Gonzales, & Sarah Watkins of RiseUp/Levanta Texas to discuss their success in mobilizing Texas women and men, young and old of all stripes to descend on the Texas Capitol in Austin to fight against Texas’ draconian anti-women laws. They will also discuss different methodologies in using new technologies to mobilize not only the young, but all Americans.
