In a recent interview with National Public Radio, SiX Executive Director Nick Rathod sat down to discuss SiX’s work and how state lawmakers can lead the progressive resistance to President-elect Trump and his conservative allies in Congress.

“Let’s have some debates about policies and see where things shake out,” said Rathod during the interview. “I mean, I grew up in Nebraska, and when I talk with my conservative friends there, we’re pretty close on a lot of the issues. But the thing is that we just haven’t ever really sat down and talked to people about what it – what equal pay actually means. You know, do you care whether your daughter gets paid the same as your son? I think most people would say yeah. Do you care that people have a living wage, that people who are playing by the rules, working hard, I think people would say yes to that. Let’s have those conversations locally, and let’s shake out who is actually fighting for those things.”
