Mark Your Calendars: Fridays at Noon*

File under "Raising Hell"

One of my favorite ways to spend lunchtime each Friday: "Brunch With Bernie." 

Who is Bernie? U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is a tireless champion of universal health care and fair trade policies, who is also dedicated to undoing Citizens United and reversing global warming.

What is "Brunch With Bernie"? It is:
  • weekly, national hour-long town hall meeting with Senator Sanders, and
  • a regular feature of The Thom Hartmann Program  (an internationally syndicated progressive radio show). 
During this on-air town hall meeting, people from across the U.S. can call in to talk with Senator Sanders.

Four Reasons to brunch with Bernie:

1. It's a great way to get the skinny on national issues from someone who tells it like it is; 

2. You can get information free of Democratic and Republican Party talking points;  

3. Senator Sanders' answers to callers' questions actually answer callers' questions; and 

4. Senator Sanders regularly suggests how citizens can champion different policy issues.
