There are increasing calls for the Senate to reform the filibuster. Critics say it has a racist history and keeps power in the hands of the few. Stephen Spaulding with Common Cause says the filibuster is undemocratic and needs to change. 

Just Solutions from Free Speech TV features inspiring conversations with activists, community leaders, and others working to make our world a better place. We discuss the many challenges we are facing while exploring the solutions emerging from the grassroots. This is a weekly 1/2 hour radio show/podcast/TV show. Free Speech TV is one of the last standing national, independent news networks committed to advancing progressive social change. As the alternative to television networks owned by billionaires, governments, and corporations, our network amplifies underrepresented voices and those working on the front lines of social, economic and environmental justice.
