Council Conversations with Kshama Sawant (2014)
How did a software engineer from India end up becoming the first socialist member of the Seattle City Council? In her first appearance on Council Conversations, Sawant, who was elected to the council by a razor-thin margin last year, discusses her path to politics, including her push to raise Seattle`s minimum wage to $15 an hour. She joins host Josephine Cheng at the "bridges to nowhere" in the Washington Park Arboretum to talk about what drives her activism and what`s next on her history-making political agenda.
