Anti-Fascist Organizing panel tonight at 7pm - watch live!
Donald Trump’s bid for presidency is no longer a comedic farce but a political reality that should not be underestimated or taken lightly. This political upset represents a catastrophic blow to working class women, communities of color, immigrants, Muslims, and LGBTQ populations.
Where do we go from here? What can we do right now to organize for the most vulnerable? What political forces can we muster to challenge the Trump administration? And how does this election relate to the global shift to the right and the rise of fascism at home?
Panel participants include Muna Mire, writer and activist, Bhaskar Sunkara, founding editor of Jacobin, John Nichols, National Affairs Correspondent at The Nation, Ken Chen, Executive Director of the Asian American Writers’ Workshop, Donna Murch, Associate Professor of history at Rutgers University, Maryam Jamshidi, founder and editor-in-chief of Muftah, and Jamila Hammami, founder and Executive Director of the Queer Detainee Empowerment Project.
