Many people in the U.S. and around the world were in shock when Donald Trump became president one year ago. His actions over the last year have only confirmed his committment to racism, misogyny, and attacks on the working class. It has at times been difficult to even keep up with the political whiplash caused by the Trump administration’s actions, let alone formulate a response.
At the same time, the last year has also seen an enormous wave of resistance, from the massive marches at the beginning of the year, to the #metoo campaign and the outcry against sexual harrassment and assault, to the widespread athlete protests against racism and police brutality, among others.
These movements are a critical first step to building a left that can provide an alternative to the bigotry and imperialism built into our system. Join us for a discussion about how we can strengthen our movements and also put forward long-term alternatives that can solve the crises around us.
