Episode 173 - Watch the Throne
This week, Roqayah and Kumars are joined by legal advocate, grassroots organizer, and congressional candidate Shahid Buttar about his campaign to unseat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as he runs for California's 12th Congressional district.
Buttar, a lifelong activist, describes the lessons he's drawn from the Bernie Sanders campaign in developing his own progressive coalition and campaign, as well as what drew him out from the world of grassroots organizing and into the political arena.
Buttar also discusses the failures of not only Nancy Pelosi and how his concerns with the speaker of the house transcend her office and lay at the feet of the Democratic Party itself.
