Elections and Movements for Change

polling_station.jpgOne of the critical debates in the left for generations has been the role or electoral politics. This has been a major dividing line in the activity of many different groups, and continues to this day. 

This panel discussion and dialogue will address the questions: Do elections help us build power in creating transformational change? Can we participate in the major political parties without losing the values at the heart of our work? Are there viable routes to change that ignore electoral politics? Can we build movement through elections? Do we change politics or do they change us?

Participants in the panel include:

Jake Allen, member of Rochester Red & Black
Jesse Lenney, Upstate Political Director, Working Families Party
Alex White, Rochester Mayoral Candidate, Green Party of Monroe County
Denise Young, Rochester Central Labor Council (*for identification purposes only)

This forum is organized by Rochester Red & Black as part of their monthly educational series.
