Running as a Democratic Socialist: A Conversation with Benji and Tessa

Depending on your political perspective the word socialist might conjure up many images. You might think of Bernie Sanders, you might think of a welfare state, you might think of a revolution, and if you are conservative you might think anything the government does to help you is socialist. Since the campaign of Bernie Sanders there have been more and more Democratic Socialist candidates running for office, the most notable being Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York and Representative Rashida Tlaib from Detroit. Today we will be exploring that idea a little more to address the main questions of: Why are they running as socialist?

Join us while Tessa and Benji talk about why they are running for city council.
