#Resist – The Future of Our Progressive Movement

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

texas capitol

Date: April 24th, 2017

Time:  11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Location: Austin Bar Association, 816 Congress Ave., Suite 700

Program: Is Resistance Futile? Are resistance organizations irresistible? What is the future, focus, and goal of left/ progressive organizations? Most importantly who are the resistance organizations? Like health care, political change is complicated. During, and in the wake of the 2016 elections, organizations like Indivisible, the Women’s March, immigrant rights, and black lives matter continue to organize resistance efforts to disrupt the political process. Hear from next-era organizers fighting on the front for human rights, equal rights, and criminal justice reform.
