Harris Gruman, SEIU MA Political Director
Georgia Hollister Isman, Director Mass Alliance
former Gubernatorial candidate Grace Ross (schedule permitting)
plus maybe others….
What is the significance of yesterday’s election results to activists of the left? What electoral, legislative and activist work can we look forward to in the year ahead? We’ll be looking both at the national and the state elections, and at activism at all levels.
Harris Gruman is Massachusetts Political Director for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). He is also a former Director of Massachusetts Neighbor to Neighbor, and has been involved in political work both at the state and federal election for many years.
Georgia Hollister Isman is Director of Mass Alliance, a statewide coalition of labor unions, civil rights, environmental and community groups working for a better and more accountable State legislature. Under Georgia’s leadership the Alliance has helped elect new progressive leaders across the state and yearly trains dozens of new political organizers.
Harris and Georgia were both listed by Campaigns and Elections magazine as among the top 80 “influencers” in Massachusetts.
Former Green Party and Democratic Party Gubernatorial candidate Grace Ross will join us by phone, schedule permitting. A few others have been invited… Audience participation by telephone call-in may also be possible (we only have one line). The number will be announced on the air.
