Left Forum Panel: Universalizing Resistance
June 3, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree – $100
Now in its 13th year, Left Forum has grown into one the largest annual convergences of the left.
Attend the panel that will launch the new book, “Welcome to the Revolution – Universalizing Resistance for Social Justice and Democracy in Perilous Times” (Routledge 2017).
Building on the insight that struggles for racial justice, for peace, against climate change, against extreme inequality, and for fulfilling lives all confront a common system, the speakers call for universalizing resistance. They build on a concept elaborated by Charlie Derber in his forthcoming book, “Welcome to the Revolution – Universalizing Resistance for Social Justice and Democracy in Perilous Times” (Routledge 2017). Together with such activist thinkers as Jamala Rogers, Ben Manski, Bill Fletcher, Jodeen Olguín-Tayler, and Matt Nelson, our speakers contributed short essays Derber’s book based on their own organizing work.
