The New Wave of Resistance in Our Time

With the rise of the far right and its cynical exploitation of "class" as a mobilizing tool, the left has been forced onto the defensive. This event is a bold reassertion of a class politics that also validates the struggles and priorities of so-called "identity-based" groups. Public sociologist, Charles Derber draws on his new book, Welcome to the Revolution, to support a new wave of resistance to the intersectional system of militarized capitalism.

He is joined by Janet MacGillivray, an environmental lawyer, indigenous activist, and member of Seeding Sovereignty, who will speak to her organizing with young people at Standing Rock. Leading the conversation will be movement strategist, Jodeen Olguin-Tayler, an organizer of many transformative labor and community campaigns involving super-exploited workers and cross-sector movements. Both Janet and Jodeen contributed short interludes--accounts and analyses of resistance--to Charles' book.
