Georgia Democratic Roundtable: 'There Is An Urgency'

Jul 27, 2016

In advance of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, "Closer Look" invited three local Democratic leaders – each of different backgrounds – to sit down and assess their party.

The panel included former U.S. Rep. John Barrow, who's a Hillary Clinton delegate at the DNC; Gigi Pedraza, co-founder of the social venture YoSoyM; and Khalid Kamau, an organizer with ATL is Ready, as well as a Bernie Sanders delegate.

While the three agreed on several points, there was a split when it came to issues of free higher education, gun control and immigration.

The discussion aired in two parts on WABE's "Closer Look," which are condensed here into one full segment. And, if you missed last week's Republican Roundtable, you can hear it here.
