Challenging the New Normal

Wednesday, February 24
5:00-7:00 pm (PT) 

Register Here for Zoom Link

2020 was marked by mass deaths, pivotal elections, climate chaos, a historic wave of Black-led uprisings against police violence, coup d’etats, labor strikes, and a resurgent right. Colliding with preexisting economic and climate crises, the global pandemic ushered in a “new normal” for a Left that rejected these conditions as intolerable. What lessons from the chaotic year can we draw to transform the current political terrain?

Join Center for Political Education for a conversation with movement leaders to interrogate the new normal and learn how social justice movements are adapting to the shifting terrain.

Speakers Include: 

  • Amna Akbar, movement lawyer and professor of law at Ohio State University
  • Cindy Wiesner, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance
  • Isaac Ontiveros, National Nurses United
  • Vanessa Moses, Causa Justa/ Just Causa
