Bristol Festival of Ideas
This event is now SOLD OUT
Bernie Sanders stormed to international headlines after running an extraordinary campaign for the Democratic primaries that saw over 13 million people turn out to vote for him, and thereby changed the global discussion surrounding US politics. But how did a relatively unknown and a democratic socialist make such waves?
Sanders provides a unique insight into the campaign that galvanised a movement, sharing experiences and the ideas and strategies that shaped it. Drawing on decades of experience as an activist and public servant, Sanders outlines his ideas for continuing this revolution, arguing for a progressive economic, environmental, racial and social justice agenda that creates jobs, raises wages and protects the planet.
Bernie Sanders ran to be the Democratic candidate for President of the United States. He is currently serving his second term in the US Senate after winning re-election in 2012 with 71 percent of the vote. He previously served as mayor of Vermont’s largest city for eight years.
