Saving the system: Progressive Democrats and capitalism

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Democratic Party today leans on a legacy that portrays it as the party for working people and the oppressed. When the real history is examined, however, this legacy does not hold up, especially in light of slavery, the Vietnam war, or welfare "reform." With this, at best, complicated history, can the Democrats be a vehicle for progressive change today?
