Where Do We Go From Here?
Friday, November 6, 5:00 PM EST / 9:00 PM GMT
Join Naomi Klein, Astra Taylor and Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor for a conversation about next steps for the struggle in the aftermath of the 2020 election and the ongoing crisis — though ballots may still not be fully counted. How do we win lasting change beyond the ballot box? How can we continue to mobilize to stop the rise of the far-right and police violence? What are the next steps for activists and organizers in the wake of the election?
