What's Next? Defeating the Ruling Class Agenda in the Trump Era

Date: 
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

City:

Trump has won the American presidency. The political conditions facing organizers and activists fighting oppressions from racism and anti-immigrant bigotry to homophobia/transphobia and climate change just shifted massively rightward. But this is also a time in which mass anger is erupting all over the country over the corruption and mendacity of the neoliberal status quo. Trump's election indicates both the ways in which the most despicable forces in history have been able to capitalize on this crisis and the deep urgency of building a fighting response.
