30jun10:00 am12:00 pmLeft Forum Workshop:The New York Left, What Happened the Last Year and What's Next?


Event Details

The New York left took two roads on 2018. One road inside the Democratic Party focused on Cynthia Nixon’s primary against Governor Cuomo and primary challenges to the Independent Democratic Conference. Nixon lost but most of the IDC primary challengers won. The other road was the independent left campaigns of the Green Party. None of the Greens won their elections. What happened during the elections? What objectives set by each road were achieved and not achieved? How did the media cover and frame the election, particularly candidates on the left? What impact did these elections have on the 2019 state budget and legislative session? What lessons can be learned for next steps by the New York left?
