    Ginger Jentzen: The Socialist Who's Not for Sale - Socialism Today #3

    We argue that the key to defeating Trump's agenda is building independent politics on the local and national level. Ginger Jentzen stands a fighting chance to win a City Council seat in Minneapolis and Kshama Sawant has already shown the power of an independent socialist in Seattle.

    We bring you interviews with Ginger Jentzen, candidate for Minneapolis City Council, Tyler Vasseur, Ginger's field coordinator, and Kshama Sawant, Seattle City Councilor.

    Socialism Today - a new podcast by Socialist Alternative - discusses what strategies we need to fight against Trump's agenda.
