WORD placards in defense of women's rights
  • Danielle Norwood of WORD (Women Organized to Resist and Defend) speaks on efforts to push back new "fetal heatbeat" abortion bans, an effort by lawmakers in North Dakota, Arkansas and beyond to tear apart Roe v. Wade and effectively deny women the right to choose.
  • Union organizer Jeff Bigelow analyses the recent contract victory for Illinois state workers. What were the challenges faced by the union, and how did this help shape its tactics?
  • Student organizer Walter Smolarek explores the details of coming sequester cuts. From furloughs to deep cuts social programs, the devastating impact of this bipartisan attack on poor and working people is only beginning to be felt.
