In response to the escalating humanitarian crisis at our southern border, a vigil called Lights for Liberty will take place all across the country and the world on Friday, July 12th. We talk with the event’s creator, Elizabeth Cronise McLaughlin, an activist, attorney, and host of the online program #ResistanceLive, who says the event is aimed at creating a sense of common cause around one of the most profound crises of our time.
Also, with the Senate race in Maine beginning to draw national attention, we chat with progressive Democrat Betsy Sweet about her plan to unseat Republican Susan Collins.
