One interesting nugget - much of the activist core is from the Occupy movement. People were sure Occupy had just faded away; a movement with no point and no outcome.
I loved coming across this quote:
“After Occupy, people didn’t just go and sit in a hole,” Brezler said. “After Occupy, people became very involved in their communities and broadened their skill sets, broadened their networks, and now are revisiting a new campaign with revived interest in electoral politics because the candidate is speaking the language of their issues.”
