On September 12, 2014, YES! welcomed Thom Hartmann, the New York Times-bestselling author, historian, and acclaimed radio and TV host to Seattle.

Our venue, Town Hall, was packed with an enthusiastic crowd of more than 800. Editor in Chief Sarah van Gelder interviewed Thom on stage about one of the keys to solving our society’s many challenges—namely, reducing the influence of big money in politics.

A musical trio, Chassez, played a tribute to our late beloved friend, Pete Seeger. Through donations at the event, by mail, and online, we met our $20,000 matching goal for the event. We’re very grateful to everyone who joined us for the event and who helped us reach the goal.  Those contributions keep YES! thriving.

Here’s some video of the conversation between Sarah and Thom:
