This panel will be an open conversation with the participants as well as people attending the session. It will be organized around themes in Lisa Fithian’s forthcoming book: Shut it Down: Stories from a Fierce Loving Resistance. Of the many things we plan to engage are strategies for change now, including towards a non-patriarchal and non-racist society and movement – as well as with our eyes on eliminating capitalism. We each believe, in multiple ways, that we must manifest the future we desire in our organizing. What this looks like, and how we do it is a conversation. Each of us comes from different organizing and generational backgrounds and will speak from those places. The discussion will be facilitated by Marina Sitrin.
