SXSW Sessions

Oct 31, 2022

In an era of expanding authoritarian violence overseas and crippling political divisions in the United States, three generations of activists will explore how democracy can be saved through our current political system. Using lessons from the unconventionally innovative presidential candidacies of the late Senator Mike Gravel, Marianne Williamson, and Andrew Yang, the panel will demonstrate how social media, film, and provocative progressive language expanded the range of policies politically acceptable to the mainstream voting population. The relevance of these strategies has become even more critical now than in the 2020 campaigns in which they were developed.
