Michael Blake on KUOW's The Record: How to discuss politics with your relatives

Thanksgiving Politics

The day before Thanksgiving Professor Michael Blake joined KUOW's The Record for a panel discussion of the key issues happening in the news which are most likely to be discussed among families over the holidays.  The panel also included Seattle City Councilmember Lorena Gonzalez, journalist Erica C. Barnett and other guests.

The topics included race and justice issues, protests on college campuses in Washington State and across the country; Seattle City Council’s no vote on increasing parental leave from 4 to 12 weeks; and other tough topics - how to talk or not talk about politics at family holidays.
