After inauguration day in 2021, what's next for Democratic Socialism in America and Bernie Sander's political revolution?

The political ambitions of the movement behind Bernie Sanders have never been limited to winning the White House. Since Bernie first entered the presidential primaries in 2016, his supporters have worked to organize a revolution intended to encourage the active participation of millions of ordinary people in political life.

In Bigger than Bernie, activist writers Meagan Day and Micah Uetricht give us an intimate map of this movement to remake American politics top to bottom, profiling the grassroots organizers who are building something bigger, and more ambitious, than the career of any one candidate. As participants themselves, Day and Uetricht provide a serious analysis of the prospects for long-term change, offering a strategy for making “political revolution” more than just a campaign slogan. They provide a road map for how to entrench democratic socialism in the halls of power and in our own lives.

This new edition offers unmatched insights into the people behind the most unique campaign in modern American history and explores how the political revolution has been re-tooled for a time of economic crisis and pandemic.


  • An indispensable guide to twenty-first-century socialism from the viewpoint of clear-eyed,
    sharp-witted, smart, funny authors … They give me hope!

    Jane McAlevey, author of A Collective Bargain
  • “Part history lesson, part guidebook; this is a love letter to the everyday people and movements
    who transformed this country. Bigger than Bernie isn’t just about the man who’s spent the
    majority of his political career on the fringes. It’s about fighters. It’s about thinkers. It’s about
    love. It’s about us.”

    Phillip Agnew, Cofounder of the Dream Defenders
  • An exhilarating account of what we’ll be doing in the coming years. Anyone who thinks, with
    dread or relief, that the work comes to an end after Election Day in 2020 will think again. I’m
    going to keep coming back to them and their book

    Corey Robin, author of The Enigma of Clarence Thomas
