Out d’Coup LIVE | Alyssa Bowen from True North Research on right-wing dark money funding anti-abortion push to take over state governments
On this week's show, I welcome Alyssa Bowen back to the program. Alyssa is a Senior Researcher and Managing Editor at the progressive watchdog organization True North Research. Tonight our focus turns to the right-wing dark money that is funding the anti-abortion movement's push to take over state legislatures and deepen the devastation wrought by the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Alyssa received her PhD in History from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in 2021 with an interest in fascism and antifascism, solidarity and social movements, immigration/exile and transnational history. She has bylines in the Nation and in Truthout, where she is a regular contributor. More of her public writing can be found on True North Research’s website and Substack. Follow Alyssa on Twitter @AlyssaAnnBowen.
We'll be talking about two of Alyssa's recent co-authored articles for TruthOut, "Dark Money Fuels the Anti-Abortion Movement's Push to Control State Legislatures" and "Right-Wing Dark Money is Coming for Reproductive Rights in Your State." Links to both articles are in today’s show notes.
