Speaking Event: The Shutdown, Racism in the US, & the Rise of the Tea Party Right
Join with the Catalyst Project and the Center for Political Education for a special evening with movement veteran Max Elbaum. As part of the ongoing Study & Struggle series, Max will speak on the government shutdown, racism, and the rise of the Tea Party Right.
What was the government shutdown all about, anyway? What are the strategic implications of this moment for anti-racist activists? How can we push back against the Right's assault on people of color, queer people, immigrants, disabled people, Muslims, and working class communities, while advancing a vision of collective liberation?
SPEAKER BIO: Max Elbaum has been involved in peace and anti-racist movements since joining students for a Democratic Society (SDS) in Madison, Wisconsin in the 1960s. Elbaum is the author of "Revolution in the Air: Sixties Radicals Turn to Lenin, Mao and Che", and a founding writer with War Times/Tiempo de Guerras.
