Common Good Politics - The Power of the People

April 20, 2021

Twelve everyday citizens decide on a verdict in the Chauvin Trail, which will have huge implications for us as a society. The same is true for our national politics. The power to enact change and justice lies with the everyday citizens if we're willing to do the work to overcome obstacles (voter suppression for example) and wield it well.

Doug and Robb also pay tribute to former vice-president Walter Mondale who passed away this week.
