WHAT IS TO BE DONE? STRATEGIES TO FIGHT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION
February 17, 6:30pm - Mayday Community Space
A political discussion co-hosted by the Democratic Socialists of America & the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung—New York Office.
Donald Trump’s election has made clear the rise of a nationalist right, with echoes of dangerous authoritarian governments past and an increasing number of powerful friends in countries around the world.

Speakers will discuss lessons from the past, from elsewhere in the world, and from the most recent acts of resistance.
