Our first episode as a podcast!
Green Socialist Notes is a weekly livestream/podcast hosted by 2020 Green Party/Socialist Party presidential and vice presidential nominees, Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker. Started as a weekly campaign livestream in the spring of 2020, the streams have continued post elections and are now under the umbrella of the Green Socialist Organizing Project, which grew out of the 2020 presidential campaign. Green Socialist Notes seeks to provide both an independent Green Socialist perspective, as well as link listeners up with opportunities to get involved in building a real people-powered movement in their communities.
This week Howie and Angela talk about some current events, reflect on our 2021 Black History Month livestream series, and Howie reflects on “What I learned about liberation from Black revolutionaries,” before taking supporter questions.
