We Americans are fundamentally conservative, right? That’s what we’ve been told for as long as anyone can remember. You can’t express or advocate for honest progressive values, you must pander to the mythical “right of center” middle. But this idea has failed us and lead to the current disaster in Washington. So please join us as we discuss the value of being boldly progressive in Houston, with Laura Moser.

Tune in to hear what Laura has to say about this upcoming runoff election, learn more about her platform, how it is to be a mother and running for office, and why she thinks she'd be the better Democratic nominee to go up against Rep.
