Bernie Sanders

Thu 27 Apr 2017

Join us for an inside account of Sanders' extraordinary campaign - and a blueprint for future political action.

Bernie Sanders stormed to international headlines after running an extraordinary campaign for the Democratic primaries that saw over 13 million people turn out to vote for him, and thereby changed the global discussion surrounding US politics. But how did a relative unknown and a democratic socialist make such waves?

Sanders provides a unique insight into the campaign that galvanised a movement, sharing experiences and the ideas and strategies that shaped it. Drawing on decades of experience as an activist and public servant, Sanders outlines his ideas for continuing this revolution, arguing for a progressive economic, environmental, racial and social justice agenda that creates jobs, raises wages and protects the planet.

Senator Sanders will be taking pre-submitted questions only, please send your question to [javascript protected email address]

This event will be BSL interpreted by Mark Schofield. We have reserved specific seats that offer clear views of both the stage and interpreter - please let us know if you require this when booking.
