There is a whole lot of debate out there about the WFP endorsing Elizabeth Warren. I offer some thoughts about that this week in Organizing Upgrade.
I am not surprised many Bernie supporters are angry about the decision, and I think political critique is fair. Debate about candidates and strategy can strengthen the left. But I’m discouraged by the personal attacks flying about, and the focus on the endorsement process. This is destructive (and in fact, makes many wonder if this is an orchestrated attack from outsiders on the right). Alicia Garza offers a powerful statement in response here.
