Next Steps for Independent Politics

February 17, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

NextSteps-4x6_correctedConditions set for the varied fast track of oppressive policies and executive orders of the Trump administration were created, bi-partisan, by preceding administrations. The neo-liberal policies of the last Democratic Party leadership laid fertile ground for a neo-fascist, right wing populist oriented transfer of power.

If the only way forward is a people’s movement truly independent of the ruling elite, what are those ways? What lessons are there from last election cycle? How do we both shield ourselves while moving forward to progressive social transformation? How should electoral politics fit in?

Join us for an exciting evening of bold addresses and cultural performances featuring Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka, former Presidential and Vice Presidential Green Party candidates, performances by vocalist Darryl! LC Moch, and The Ushindi Performance Troupe.

Come for inspiration, answers, and opportunities for forging connections to win!
MC’d by Esther Iverem, On The Ground, WPFW 89.3 FM. Opening speakers TBA.

Admission is free and open to the public but, only for defraying costs, a suggested $5 donation will be requested at the door. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.  GET TICKETS!

Organized by Thought In Action Consulting, the event co-sponsors: The Institute for Policy Studies, Coalition of Concerned Mothers,  and Howard County Friends of Latin America (updated as more organizations confirm). A special thanks to our media sponsors, WPFW 89.3 FM, Black Agenda Report, and We Act Radio!
