2 DAYS LEFT. Professor and Future Public School Parent Todd Wolfson:

"On May 19 I am going to #VoteJustice. I support 215PA's Economic and Racial Justice slate because Jim Kenney, Helen Gym, Wilson Goode, Jr., Sherrie Cohen, Isaiah Thomas and Bill Greenlee are the leaders that will move Philadelphia into the future. They will prioritize public education for my son and daughter. They will fight for jobs with dignity while challenging the school to prison pipeline. And they will create a city that works for all Philadelphians by not placing Comcast or billionaires at the front of the line."

Now What? Defying Trump and the Left's Way Forward

Trumpolicious.PNG

Now What? Defying Trump and the Left's Way Forward was a phone in webinar organized by Freedom Road Socialist Organization in the wake of the 2016 election.

Now what? We’re all asking ourselves that question in the wake of Trump’s victory. We’ve got urgent strategizing and work to do, together. Join Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson of the Movement for Black Lives and Freedom Road, Calvin Cheung-Miaw, Jodeen Olguin-Taylor of Mijente and WFP, Joe Schwartz of the Democratic Socialists of America, and Sendolo Diaminah of Freedom Road for a discussion of what happened, and what we should be doing to build mass defiance. And above all, how do we build the Left in this, which we know is the only solution to the crises we face?

This event will take place Tuesday November 15, 2016 at 9pm Eastern/8pm Central/6pm Pacific.

Those invited, on Facebook included Todd Wolfson.[4]
