Description/Abstract of your Event: 

Rage at the status quo is erupting everywhere. Today our world is plunged into unprecedented inequality, war and brutality with an impending climate catastrophe. Rebellion against the criminal billionaire class has caught fire as Bernie Sanders runs openly as a socialist. Across the nation, racist cops have ignited militant resistance, with African American youth in a leadership role. Women are facing threats to hard won reproductive rights. Immigrants, especially Muslims, confront a racist backlash in the obnoxious rants of President Trump. Join us for a discussion on the election and its impact on our strategies and choices. Radicals will exchange ideas from different perspectives on how to implement deep, long lasting change and what that means.
