In an interview with USA Today, Bernie Sanders announced the next branch of the revolution – The Sanders Institute.
In what is currently being loosely defined as a conglomerate of educational and political organizations founded and organized by Sanders, the Sanders Institute is being posited as the next step of the Sanders revolution.
Now that Sanders is no longer actively running for president (though he has not yet conceded from the 2016 race), the Senator is attempting to funnel the millions of revolutionary supporters into further political and societal activism.
The Sanders Institute’s first order of business is strongly supporting at least 100 candidates nationwide in down-ballot races. These candidates are handpicked by Sanders for their progressive stances and can be in races for Congress all the way down to local school boards.
