OFF-KILTER with Rebecca Vallas

Dec 21, 2017

A year ago, we were all looking ahead to 2017 wondering what the new world order was going to look like under a Trump presidency, and with the GOP firmly in control of both chambers of Congress. Now, after a whirlwind year of ups, downs, and words we can’t say on radio, 2017 is drawing to a close – and for many of us, not a moment too soon. So this week, Off-Kilter’s taking a moment to look back on the year in review. First, Rebecca speaks with Neera Tanden, President of the Center for American Progress, about what she’s learned as we look ahead to 2018. Next, she talks with Ezra Levin, Co-Executive Director of Indivisible, as the movement spurred by a humble google doc commemorates its one year anniversary. And finally, with the DREAM Act in limbo amid Congress’s end of year funding debate, Rebecca’s joined by Tom Jawetz, CAP’s immigration guru, about what’s at stake for the tens of thousands of immigrants whose futures hang in the balance.
