Rami Hod is the Executive Director of the Social Economic Academy (SEA). He is one of the most strategic thinking people I’ve ever met. He speaks of opportunities, building constituencies, and hope. He believes the future of the Israeli Left is in building support around social and economic interests.
Rami told us about the “quiet revolution” building strength in Israel in recent years. Israelis are becoming more progressive on economic issues. Since 2011 Israelis are organizing in their communities, joining labor unions in vast numbers and demonstrating for their economic rights. They have had many successes: parents mobilized and won free public education for children from the age of three, for example. This is a grassroots revolution that has been unrecognized outside Israel.
Listen to our conversation with Rami Hod. You will not regret it.
