Jay Johnson on Why We Need A National Movement at Populism 2015

Every speaker from throughout the country at Populism 2015 last weekend in Washington, D.C. was inspiring. Among them, Virginia Organizing Treasurer Jay Johnson especially nailed it, rallying the crowd during a Saturday plenary session.

“We need a national movement like we’re trying to build here,” said Jay. “It needs to be grounded in and owned by community organizations that are committed to building power within their states.”
