Ron and Phyllis Aronson at Birmingham Bloomfield Democratic Club

Date: 
Thu, Jan 12, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Ron and Phyllis Aronson, founders of Huntington Woods Peace Citizen and Education will speak on Resisting Trump - how to have hope. Here is an excerpt from Ron's piece in the Boston Review.

"Though it has now been overshadowed by the stunning victory of bigoted nativism—whether loudly supported or quietly overlooked by most Republicans as well as particular members of the working class—we must not forget that this year we have witnessed the groundwork being laid for a genuine revival of social hope in the United States. I do not mean a renewed faith in grand narratives or a vague and misty-eyed optimism but the tough-minded and inspired disposition to act collectively to make the world more equal, more democratic, more peaceful, more secure, and more just. Despite the defeat of the Sanders campaign, and despite Trump’s victory, we must understand this hope and work to keep it alive."
