What Happens After Bernie? A Conversation with Micah Uetricht

Bernie Sanders suspended his campaign two days ago. The suspension left many grassroots organizations that had endorsed him wondering where to go from here. Francesca speaks with Micah Uetricht, co-author of Bigger Than Bernie, about it.

Micah Uetricht is a member of Democratic Socialists Of America, which endorsed Bernie Sanders for President. He’s also managing editor of Jacobin and co-author with Meagan Day of Bigger Than Bernie: How We Go From The Sanders Campaign To Democratic Socialism.

Francesca called Uetricht up to get his reaction to the suspension of the Sanders campaign and how he thought the movement that supported him might continue growing.
