An institute founded by relatives of Vermont's independent U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders will host a conference of like-minded thinkers in Burlington that will focus on issues like health care, the climate and workers' rights.
The three-day conference hosted by the Sanders Institute will be held in Burlington from Nov. 29-Dec. 1.

Some of the people expected to attend include New York Mayor Bill deBlasio, environmentalist Bill McKibben, and Sanders.

The institute was co-founded last year by Bernie Sanders' wife, Jane O'Meara Sanders. It focuses "on progressive solutions to economic, environmental, racial and social justice issues."

O'Meara Sanders says the meeting will focus on what she describes as some of the nation's most pressing issues, including Medicare for All and workers' rights.
