Disinformation, polarization, growing economic inequality, attempts to undermine elections and the rights of women and racial minorities-all of these are turning up the heat on American democracy. At the same time, pro-democracy movements are also on the rise. So is this the darkness before the storm or before the dawn? "That all rests on what we're doing right now," says guest Adrienne Evans. In this episode, Laura and returning guest co-host, Scot Nakagawa, speak with three national organizers who share tools and strategies for building democracy and countering Right-Wing, authoritarian movements. They're reaching across the political divide and organizing at the margins to shift narratives, empower everyday citizens, and bring people together. What's working and where are we headed? Find out in this episode. Guests: Scot Nakagawa, Senior Partner, ChangeLab (co-host); Rachel O'Leary Carmona, Executive Director, Women's March; Adrienne Evans, Executive Director, United Vision for Idaho; Rinku Sen, Executive Director, Narrative Initiative.
