Election 2016: Millions Signing on to the Political Revolution

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, CWA President Chris Shelton said the presidential campaign by Senator Bernie Sanders will go forward, "because Sanders has said repeatedly that this campaign is not about him but about the political revolution our country needs to restore a government and an economy that works for working families."

With a focus on fair trade, affordable college, securing Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, and reining in Wall Street and the Big Banks, Americans are coming together in support of the grassroots economic and political movement we need.
