2017
Description: 
Building on the insight that struggles for racial justice, for peace, against climate change, against extreme inequality, and for fulfilling lives all confront a common system, the speakers call for universalizing resistance. They build on a concept elaborated by Charlie Derber in his forthcoming book, "Welcome to the Revolution - Universalizing Resistance for Social Justice and Democracy in Perilous Times" (Routledge 2017). Together with such activist thinkers as Jamala Rogers, Ben Manski, Bill Fletcher, Jodeen OlguĂ­n-Tayler, and Matt Nelson, our speakers contributed short essays Derber's book based on their own organizing work.
