CANCEL THE APOCALYPSE #3: A talk with Brand New Congress' Corbin Trent

BNCLogoShare.png

Dear Allies,

Please join us on Thursday night at 8pm ET for a livestreamed conversation with Corbin Trent, the founder of Tennessee for Bernie Sanders and a core team member of Brand New Congress, a very exciting effort to put forward 400 candidates for the 2018 primaries. We were thrilled when BNC put out a platform calling for a WWII-scale mobilization to switch to 100% renewables in a decade (among other things), and we are very excited to work with them to elect hundreds of pro-climate mobilization candidates in 2018.

The Climate Mobilization's Ezra Silk and Greg Schwedock will speak with Corbin about his experience on the Bernie campaign, the excellent new book "Rules for Revolutionaries: How Big Organizing Can Change Everything" (in which Corbin is featured), BNC's strategy and platform, and the exciting future of electoral politics in the context of the climate crisis. 

Date: Thursday, Feb. 16
Time: 8pm EDT / 5pm PDT

    Put public banking in the BNC platform to facilitate full employment at living wages, reduce the cost of public infrastructure projects, and reduce public debt by cycling interest and fees back into the budget instead of into the private banks. http://www.publicbankinginstitute.org/
