This is an interview with Michelle Alexander from April 2016. I re-watched it last week and I am surprised that more people don't know about it and that it still only has 59,000 views as of January 2019. In this interview, Michelle Alexander endorses the "political revolution."
It's a great interview and here's the clip if you want to watch the whole thing, but I will provide a transcript of the first three minutes to give you a sense of what she says to @chrislhayes. #BernieSanders #Bernie2020 #OurRevolution @OurRevolution
Michelle Alexander, by the way, is the author of The New Jim Crow, Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, and I highly recommend the book, too, as it provides a tremendous insight into the racial injustice inherent in the U.S. mass incarceration era. @thenewjimcrow

2. @ninaturner #Turner2020

(Oops, I forgot to include the seeds; Bernie is 1st seed and Nina is 8th seed. The '1' and '2' by their names aren't seeds, but rather correspond to the poll options. I'll fix this in the rest of them, seeing as someone's already voted in this one.)

Lots of news from the @OurRevolution call!!! This will be a pretty lengthy thread.

@jjz1600 was on the call & said that state parties are the most opaque. One of the proposals made to the DNC is a recruiting process for running & becoming involved in the political party. 1/
May 8th & 9th is when the DNC will be voting on the proposed amendments to the Rules and Bylaws. Our Rev. will be mailing out information to us on how to get our state party chairs to the DNC for this so we can make sure it passes. 2/
Perhaps my fav. part of the call - a guy named Daniel who worked on @WoodfinForBham's campaign told us some encouraging stats from his time on it. They made 40,000 calls to ppl, knocked on 10,000 doors. 11,500 of these ppl NEVER voted for a mayoral vote before. Spending more 3/
