Episode 02: Maria Svart


On the afternoon of January 19th, 2017, I went to the Washington D.C. offices of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) where I met with their National Director Maria Svart. This was just a day before the mass demonstrations and riots that would characterize the Inauguration of the 45th President of the United States.

We discussed modern socialism, the role of young people in building a diverse mass movement and her strategies and goals as we were moving into the Trump era.
