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. In its first weeks the Trump administration has overseen a slew of executive actions, leaving no doubt that our country’s democratic institutions and liberal traditions, however flawed, are in serious danger.

Initial resistance from within the Democratic Party has been mostly tepid. The streets, on the other hand, have been ablaze, and opposition activists have put the new administration on alert. How can we, as democratic socialists, best support and help to sustain and grow this resistance to the Trump administration? Speakers will discuss lessons from the past, from elsewhere in the world, and from the most recent acts of resistance.

#NoBanNoWall. #DumpTrump. Indeed.

Introduction: Albert Scharenberg, Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung—New York Office

Chair: Liz Henderson, National Political Committee, Democratic Socialists of America

Speakers:
Michael Lighty, National Nurses United
Winnie Wong, People for Bernie
Khalid Kamau, Atlanta Black Lives Matter & Fight for $15

When: Friday, Feb 17, 6:30-8pm, followed by a reception
