Long-time stalwart organizer Carl Davidson interviewed at Progressive Democrats of America meeting in Cleveland. They are not affiliated with the Democratic Party. He talks about how progressives have been shut out of the Democratic Party and how their local PDA meetings now draw more people than Democratic Party meetings. That’s because they organize from the ground up, starting with knocking on doors and asking people what their concerns are.
- Talk to people
- Talk to people outside your comfort zone
- Computers are great but you still need to talk to people face to face
Davidson blogs at carldavidson.blogspot.com where he favors “cyberradicalism, the solidarity economy and a socialism for the 21st century”
