Host Lauren-Glenn Davitian is joined by Rick Hubbard, Vermont Coordinator for Democracy Spring and Democracy Awakening events scheduled for April of 2016, Joanna Cummings, Concerned Citizen, and Ben Clark, Middlebury College Student and Organizer, to share event information and the movement that aims to save our democracy.
On April 2, the Democracy Spring march will begin at the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia and march to the steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington. More than 2,000 people have pledged to join the protest and risk arrest between April 11-18 in what is hoped to be the largest act of civil disobedience in a generation with the hope of opening the door to reforms once considered impossible and reclaim democracy. On April 16-18, Democracy Awakening will continue the event with teach-ins, sit-ins, and more.
