A lot of people believe that evangelical voters are hopelessly lost to the Republican Party. Doug Pagitt, the Executive Director of Vote Common Good, has other ideas.
His organization is traveling across the country seeking to persuade 5-10% of Republican voters to change their votes and elect candidates who will protect democracy and the peaceful transfer of power.
In this Footnotes podcast conversation, you'll hear Doug speak passionately and personally about evangelicals (he calls himself a progressive evangelical). He's also a theorist who uses simple but eloquent frameworks to make sense of how we perceive ourselves and how to change people's minds.
You'll learn about the role of information, transformation, and participation, as well as about the "hero-victim-villian" concept.
