      “The undersigned will set the agenda for the meeting”

      And the timing of this announcement, as candidates are in the process of announcing their bids for the nomination, is just a coincidence.

      And what “ongoing conversations” are being referred to? It sure wasn’t in the news, and the media would have leapt at such.

      If Bernie’s paid staffers committed abuses then that is more than just serious. But how did so many people remain silent about that for years? How did they find each other?

      If fellow volunteers committed abuses that is also serious. But afaik anyone could walk in and start doing volunteer work. If you canvassed with someone, it was by choice. That’s how me and my canvassing partner, a young woman, teamed up.

      The local campaign HQ had a paid Sanders volunteer in charge, and he was usually there all the time. There was also a woman there most of the time who had her own office and was usually on the phone. Not sure if she was paid or not.

      We had a lot of young people, lots of whom were women, and we all strove to be on our best behavior, and any of us would have been supportive if someone complained of being abused.

      The person who ran the office was top notch, he got chosen to run another office after the NY primary was over.

      So I’m wondering if some people volunteered, and ran into abusive, racist, otherwise prejudiced, fellow volunteers who hurt them. That could happen at any kind of a rally or event.

      Should there have been someone in charge of preventing volunteers abusing other volunteers? I guess now there will be, but I’m not seeing how people felt silence imposed on them, or feared that the Sanders campaign would not listen to them, or expect them to just take it on the chin.

      You can use any words there…

      Can’t wait until we can use them here.

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...
