Activism in the community and in the halls of Congress. This week, our final interview from our Progressive Caucus Center Strategy Summit coverage with Seattle Democratic Representative Pramila Jayapal and Baltimore community activist Dominique Stevenson. Their work may have more in common than you think. Then, Dominique takes us to the site of a community farming initiative in Sandtown – the neighborhood where Freddie Gray once lived. Laura Flanders investigates.
