Gaza and US Politics in the Shadow of MAGA

Mon December 11, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST

Since the latest round of violence exploded in the Israel-Palestine conflict October 7, progressives in the US have been grappling with a set of complicated challenges. How can we build pressure for a ceasefire and an end to US blank-check support for Israeli apartheid while increasing our chances of beating the MAGA Right in the 2024 election? How can we broaden the already unprecedented grassroots actions demanding a change in US policy while acting electorally to defend every congressmember who has backed a ceasefire?

Join Maurice Mitchell, National Director of the Working Families Party; Lara Kiswani, Executive Director of the Arab Resource and Organizing Center; and Max Elbaum of the Convergence Editorial Board for a livestream panel addressing these questions. Maya Schenwar, Director of the Truthout Center for Grassroots Journalism, will moderate the discussion.

View Elbaum’s presentation on this topic at last Saturday’s MPAOC conference and his and Bill Fletcher’s article about it
