Anna In Action!

It’s important for elected officials to engage people in the political process. Ideally, this is through live listening events where members of different communities get to talk about how policy affects their lives. COVID-19 made that impossible, so Anna invited members of the community and experts to join her on Solidarity LIVE to engage in the discussion of problems and solutions for our community.

Listen to Anna dig into the root of the problems at the State House through interviews with progressive state reps and organizations who are working to fight the concentration of power at the State House.

26. How Incarceration Diminishes our Democracy Incorruptible Massachusetts

Today we speak with Kristina Mensik from Democracy Behind Bars.  In this truly horrifying but important discussion, you'll hear how we jail more people per capita than any other nation on earth, how we charge them exorbitant prices just to get enough food to eat, and then make them work for less than a dollar an hour. And that's not even the meat of the discussion — we dig deep into how incarceration functions to suppress the vote, especially in the Black community and other communities of color. Jordan Berg Powers, Jonathan Cohn (absent today), and Anna Callahan chat about Massachusetts politics. This is the audio version of the Incorruptible Mass podcast, season 4 episode 26. The video version is available here. You’re listening to Incorruptible Massachusetts. Our goal is to help people understand state politics: we investigate why it’s so broken, imagine what we could have here in MA if we fixed it, and report on how you can get involved.

The progressive movement won’t be won by having more money or newer technology. It will be won by using the absolute best practices in organizing that mobilize the majority of people into a true grassroots revolution.
