The Next Four Years: Organizing Followup
January 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
At The Next Four Years conference at Simmons College on December 3, we discussed the political situation we find ourselves in and the need for a unified progressive resistance to Trumpism.
On January 12, we will call on conference speakers and organizers, as well as all participants, to suggest ideas for unified resistance around which people can organize; the group will then choose several of those for breakout sessions to develop the ideas. Examples of small group topics may include:
- Counter – inaugural organizing
- RaiseUp Massachusetts campaigns ($15 minimum wage; millionaire’s tax; paid family leave)
- Electing progressive candidates (Our Revolution)
- Protecting immigrant rights
- Countering Islamophobia
- Stop the $1 Trillion nuclear weapons modernization with Subways Not Submarines, Books Not Bombs and similar campaigns
- Stop US wars in the Middle East
- Organize against Trump’s cabinet appointments
- Climate justice
- Building Movement Coordination
The venue will be the First Church in Cambridge, 11 Garden St, in the Jewett auditorium. Directions and parking
