This week we chat with Shahid Buttar, a progressive Democrat running against Nancy Pelosi in Calfornia's 12th congressional district. Shahid is immigrant, Muslim, non-profit advocate, community organizer, constitutional scholar, poet, musician, columnist, and policy geek. He is also an advocate for open access to technology, having worked with the EFF protecting civil liberties in the digital world. We need more voices like his in our government. If what he says resonates with you, please spread the word, donate and/or volunteer. You can find more information about Shahid and his campaign at www.shahidforchange.us.
