March 19, 2019 - Worldwide
PeoplesHub and the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung—New York Office are partnering to bring a series of online offering workshops and a circle geared at developing collective understanding of the global rise of the far right and what strategies can be used to battle it at a local level.
On Tuesday, March 19, we will co-host an online PeoplesHub Circle with three guests representing Europe, Brazil, and the U.S. The guests will be discussing the rise of the far right in their local contexts and its relationship with other processes throughout history.
