Last year on November 10th, 3 days after the election, a group of social justice leaders from across the country joined together to hold a virtual conversation, Social Justice SOS: What Happened, What's Coming and Why We Must Join Together Against Hate. Organized in just 48 hours, the webinar provided valuable insights into America’s past and present histories, uplifted intersectionality and the necessity of coalitional work, and attempted to make sense out of what had just happened to the country. The webinar, which was later published as a report, was received enthusiastically by thousands of viewers and readers.
There is much to reflect on as we approach the one year mark of this administration -- the fear turned reality of normalization, the rise of the right, the disastrous memorandums, the attack on DACA, the Muslim Ban, the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico, and the list goes on.
Join us on November 8th as we revisit the conversation we began last year. We will discuss where we are, how we can move forward, and ways to incorporate intersectional learning and action into our next steps.
