Some analysts criticize progressives who urge Democrats to focus on turning out their core base—people of color, unmarried women, and younger voters—they say it’s a big mistake to give up on working class whites. And many progressives reply that it would be a disaster for the Democrats to try to “win back” working class white Trump voters by not talking about discriminatory policing, reproductive health care, and LGBTQ rights. Joshua Holland examines the actual evidence—and concludes that Democrats have already won back enough white working-class voters to defeat Trump in 2020.

Also: What happens to pregnant women when anti-abortion state legislatures grant legal personhood to fertilized eggs, embryos, and fetuses? What happens when pregnant women’s behavior is criminalized? Katha Pollitt reports.

Also: Brett Kavanaugh was not on the list of candidates for the Supreme Court that Trump released during the campaign—how did Kavanaugh end up ahead of everybody else? Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post has that story—her new book is Supreme Ambition: Brett Kavanaugh and the Conservative Takeover.

I discovered Camilla soon after moving to NYC and her instagram quickly became my most screen-shotted account. She inspires me in so many ways from her aesthetic and taste to her philosophy of entrepreneurship and community to investing, and of course in food. We talk about her robust and meandering education and career path, food as an experience, modern philanthropy models, how the restaurant industry can open doors for anyone, accidentally plant based food, opening a restaurant, work/life balance, angel investing, intuition, relationships and love languages, mentorship, women in business , and way more. I loved having this cozy, long conversation with her in beautiful cozy apartment surrounded by her family, friends, and snuggly dogs and hope it's the first of many.

“There are no mistakes, because there is always another choice.”

“If you are too focused on a plan sometimes you can miss the other opportunities that are out there.”

“Philanthropy is more about aligning with brands, wearing brands, purchasing things and voting with your dollar everyday… not about the massive donations.”

“Learning and curiosity is innate to all of us and it’s important to foster that.”

“Every time you make a choice, you have a choice to make an impact.”
