Segment 1: "Indivisible -- A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda"
(2.5 minutes)

Together, we can resist and win! Watch this quick guide to learning about the best practices for making Congress listen.  This short video was created by Brave New Films.
 

Segment 2: "The Laura Flanders Show"
(25.5 minutes)

Laura attends the Progressive Congress Summit to speak with members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) and their colleague, Keith Ellison (D-MN).  Joining Laura this week are Representatives Mark Pocan (D-W); Barbara Lee (D-CA); Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and Yvette D. Clarke (D-NY).
Pocan and Lee are optimistic. Jayapal and Clarke see challenges ahead, especially if party leaders reject the overhaul agenda Rep. Ellison has laid out. They all see a critical role for voters in this period working in collaboration with electeds. If ever there was a time to push bold progressive vision rather than timid centrism, they say, this is it - before the 2018 election.

 

Segment 3: "Dirty Water, Dirty Money -- Coal Ash and the Attack on North Carolina’s
Courts
"

(6.5 minutes)

This mini-documentary from Legal Progress showcases the real human impact of special interest money infiltrating judicial elections by featuring one
North Carolina family’s story of how coal ash pollution has poisoned their community. Since state and federal governments have failed to regulate coal
ash as a hazardous waste, citizens’ only recourse to address the catastrophic environmental and health damages caused by the pollution is the judiciary. As detailed in a recent CAP report, however, there is a troubling correlation between North Carolina Supreme Court rulings and the success rates of firms that donate big to judicial candidates following the repeal of the state’s public financing system. This raises concerns about corporate influence in judicial races – including corporate polluters like Duke
Energy, which currently has billions of dollars at stake in North Carolina courts over its responsibility to keep toxic coal ash out of the state’s drinking water.

 

Segment 4: "What We Don't Know about Europe's Muslim Kids"
(20 minutes)

As the child of an Afghan mother and Pakistani father raised in Norway, Deeyah Khan knows what it's like to be a young person stuck between your community and your country. In this powerful, emotional talk, the filmmaker unearths the rejection and isolation felt by many Muslim kids growing up in the West — and the deadly consequences of not embracing our youth before extremist groups do.
 

Segment 5: "The Fragile Promise of Choice"
(57.5 minutes)

Through vignettes from cities and rural areas around the country, this documentary examines how restrictive legislation, in an atmosphere of harassment and violence, affects the lives of abortion providers and the women who seek their services. The film features interviews with community doctors, women seeking services, clinic directors, clergy, and counselors. Their stories illustrate the increasing number of situations in which legal does not necessarily mean accessible.
