Politics & the Future of the World: A conversation with Hannah Zimmerman
Hannah Zimmerman is a socialist activist. Politicized by the Bernie Sanders campaign at the age of 16, she became the youngest delegate at the DNC, and the youngest elected official in NYC. Now 18 and at Stanford she is continuing ‘the work of the activist’ - the daily reaching out person by person political education of grassroots organizing, under her evolving long range definition of socialist - “anti-capitalist, but what it will look like is different from what it did.”
Right now her eye is on the 2018 midterm elections, her heart and mind on the critical issue of income inequality.
Her vision for America: “Where no one is hungry and everyone who is working has the benefits they need to succeed in our society.”
Her world view: “To fight for the greater good of the common people.”
Her advice for Everywoman - “This is your time to take power and lead because when women lead great things happen.”
Hannah is a young woman who is engaged, who is committed to creating a better world; every day she hits the ground running, knowing she can make a difference. After all, she already has.
