In a round table discussion coinciding with PSN's annual Gala in New York, PSN members discuss how the progressive movement can leverage opportunities to drive grassroots change not possible at the federal level and highlight recent success on issues ranging from immigration to privatization and health care. The panel includes input from PSN Executive Director Joel Barkin, Texas State Representative and PSN Co-Chair Garnet Coleman, and Javier Morillo-Alicea, president of SEIU Local 26 in Minnesota.
This Monday, PSN Executive Director Joel Barkin moderated a panel on
immigration and health care at the annual Take Back America conference
in Washington, DC. The event, organized by Campaign for America's
future, is one of the largest annual gatherings of the nation's top
progressive leaders, advocates, and policy experts. PSN's contribution
was one of the highlights of this year's event.
