“How the democrats can win back the working class” with Justin Dangel
Justin Dangel is a serial entrepreneur who has founded and led successful companies like Firefly, Ready, and Goji, due to his genuine hope of helping people in need.
Justin is also a political wonk who founded Voter.com in 2001, an early adopter in online news media. Under his leadership the company generated over 3.5 million monthly active users and 500,000 newsletter subscribers. Voter.com was a repository for digital content that helped Americans educate themselves about local, regional, and national politics. Or to quote Justin directly, “Voter.com delivered the kind of information voters needed to make informed decisions about their elected officials.”
His political and public service background includes both volunteer and work positions with the United States Treasury Department, Senator Ted Kennedy’s Office, and Senator Joe Biden’s office.
During our chat, we discussed a wide range of topics that included: climate change, racism, gun violence, testing criteria in public schools, defund the police, student debt, and the state of journalism today. We also discussed the overall challenges of the democratic party and how they can once again align themselves with working class voters.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
