Ep. 214: Why Buffalo Matters. Why India Walton Matters. Why Democratic Socialism Matters. (w/ India Walton)

India Walton shocked the political world and upset the establishment by running against and defeating a four-term incumbent Democratic Mayor of Buffalo this past June in the Democratic primary. She’s a nurse, a union organizer, a single mother, and she will become the first socialist mayor of a major American city since 1960 if she wins the general election in November.

The political establishment in Buffalo is not taking this lightly. So, while she should be coasting to a victory in November because Buffalo is overwhelmingly Democratic, she has a very difficult opponent, backed by Trump people – Byron Brown, the guy she just defeated in the primary.

This is such an important race -- all the issues we are facing all over the country -- Covid-19, the police state, the prison industrial complex, economic inequality, climate, and sexual violence -- they all play a role in this race. And India Walton’s a thoughtful and forceful candidate and leader we should get behind to take care of these issues that plague us all.

Read India’s recent piece in The Buffalo News about her five-point plan for a safe and healthy Buffalo:

India was once executive director of the Fruit Belt Land Trust, a public project to fight gentrification and keep housing in the hands of the people. You can read more about the Fruit Belt Land Trust in Open Society:
