Every six weeks CUIP’s president, Jackie Salit, hosts a national conference call for new and veteran political activists. One hundred and fifty independent leaders from as many as 40 states participate in each of these conference calls, making them the largest regular gathering of independent voters in the country.
On the day that Salit’s Book Independent Rising, a 30-year history about the independent movement. hit the book stores, Salit gives a report on the state of the movement.
Jackie Salit interviews former Congressman Mickey Edwards, author of The Parties vs. the People How to Turn Republicans and Democrats into Americans, an insider account about political corruption and ways to fix Congress.
