Hey Family,

June and July are always busy months for me.  The end of the school year mixed with coordinating camp schedules and personal commitments over wanting to enjoy an occasional summer breeze outside always sends me in a tailspin of forgetting things.  Including what the rest of the world is up to.

Thankfully a friend pinged me about The Collective PAC’s first national candidate and campaign operative training program this weekend in the District.  I’ll talk to Collective PAC co-founder Stefanie Brown James about their recent successes and how they are using their model to build black political power.

Also on the program, Elizabeth (Liza) Goitein, Co-Director of the Liberty & National Security Program at the Brennan Center will give her analysis of former FBI director James Comey as well at Attorney General Jeff Sessions testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Grab your popcorn.

06-07-17 – Ripple Of Hope

Robert Kennedy
“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” – Robert Kennedy

Hey Family,

Who knew the latest iteration of “must-see-tv” would include Senate and Congressional hearings? Not only are the people on my Facebook and Twitter timeline grabbing popcorn for a front seat at this weeks’ supposed showdown, but NBC, ABC and CBS in addition to cable shows MSNBC and CNN will all broadcast the former FBI Directors’ testimony tomorrow. Don’t worry CSPAN, you still have my heart.

Speaking of TV, on today’s program, a man who reinvented himself to become a bastion of progressive politics during television’s golden era. The three years after John F Kennedy’s death proved to be a pivotal time not only for Robert Kennedy, but for the Democratic party itself.  Author John Bohrer will join me to discuss his book The Revolution of Robert Kennedy: From Power To Protest After JFK to talk about the parallels between the 60’s and today.

For those of you in the DMV area, be sure to check John out at Politics and Prose Friday June 9th from 7-8:30p ET as he talks about his new book. I’m sure it will be a treat.

Special Happy Birthday to my husband. Cheers old man 😉
