As Donald Trump moves to an even larger national stage as Republican presumptive nominee, what does his white, male-dominated following represent? Is it an incipient fascist movement - or just a hyper-racist/sexist one? Beyond Trump and 2016, how do we best fight right-wing populist movements, here and abroad? With a sharpened understanding of the current historic context, presenters and participants will discuss how we can bolster the rising resistance movements of Black Lives Matter, immigrants' and Muslim rights, and the calls for a "political revolution."
