About 30 people attended the meeting with Sanders and his wife Jane. It followed the delivery of a letter staffers used to request the meeting to “discuss the issue of sexual violence and harassment on the 2016 campaign, for the purpose of planning to mitigate the issue in the upcoming presidential cycle.”
This week’s meeting was billed as a first step in improving the culture of future Sanders organizations. Next steps included more research and fact-finding into what happened in 2016, and creating a roadmap for both future Sanders campaigns and other presidential campaigns to follow.
Following the meeting, one attendee said, “It went as well as it could have,” but declined to elaborate further.
