Steve Schwartzberg (Yale PhD, ’96) stands where Bernie Sanders does. From supporting public investment in our crumbling roads, bridges, water systems, and airports — to advocating healthcare for all as a right — to promoting a foreign policy capable of advancing democracy, peace, and justice — Steve’s principal reason for running for Congress is to champion the nonviolent political revolution that Bernie has launched. 

As Bernie says: “Enough is enough. This great nation and its government belong to all of the people, and not to a handful of billionaires, their Super-PACs and their lobbyists.” As Steve says: “We can’t lose: I may or may not be elected, but this campaign will contribute to a movement to take back our country from the 1%.”
