The Shutdown, Racism, & the Rise of the Tea Party Right

A Study & Struggle Event

Bay Area friends and comrades,

What was the recent government shutdown really all about? 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 simultaneously advancing a vision of collective liberation?

Join us for a Study & Struggle political education event on the government shutdown, racism, and the rise of the Tea Party Right, with guest speaker and movement veteran Max Elbaum.

Date: Monday, November 18th

Time: 6:30-8:30pm

Location: 518 Valencia: The Eric Quezada Center for Culture and Politics
