Reclaiming Gotham: Juan González on Cities Leading the Revolt Against Trumpism & Neoliberal Policies

The city of New York announced Tuesday it is deploying funding for legal services for DACA recipients across the city, following the Trump administration’s decision to rescind the DACA program. In a message posted on Twitter, the office of Mayor Bill de Blasio said, "You Are Not Alone… if you face legal problems, we’ll be right there with you." The fight to save DACA marks just the latest example of cities pushing back against the Trump administration’s agenda. From climate change to sanctuary cities to police accountability to affordable housing, cities are increasingly pushing a far more progressive agenda than their counterparts in Washington. This is a central theme in a new book by Democracy Now! co-host Juan González titled "Reclaiming Gotham: Bill de Blasio and the Movement to End America’s Tale of Two Cities."
