Trump’s America and Anti-Fascist Organizing: Panel Discussion

Trumpevent_small-



The unthinkable has happened.

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, and Maryam Jamshidi, founder and editor-in-chief of Muftah.org.

Watch the discussion as we begin the process of organizing a Left response and looking at what solidarity for marginalized people most affected by the coming Trump presidency will look like.
