led by Ty Moore

Last November Kshama Sawant won a seat on Seattle City Council, running as a Socialist Alternative candidate and endorsed by the Green Party. Her powerful grassroots campaign and improbable victory made national headlines and opened a wider discussion on the U.S. Left about the potential for a wider challenge to corporate control of politics. Now Sawant is leveraging her position and grassroots support to win a $15/hr minimum wage in Seattle, the highest in the country. Is it possible to build mass support for a clear anti-capitalist agenda? Can we build a deeper alliance between Greens and Socialists in the U.S.?

Ty Moore ran for Minneapolis City Council, endorsed by the Green Party and Socialist Alternative, and came within 229 votes of winning.
