Bernie and Racial Justice Talk
October 27, 2019
Bernie Sanders has pledged, "We will go to war against white nationalism and racism in every aspect of our lives." What kind of fight must be waged to end economic inequality, mass incarceration, environmental racism, criminalization of our border — to win racial justice in the United States? What role could a Sanders administration play?
