Where Do We Go From Here? – November 17, 2016 @ Cannery Ballroom
On November 8, 2016 Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, with 58% of all white voters voting for him. To make matters worse, the white supremacist right has also filled Congress. If we want to have any hope of defeating the white supremacist right and blocking their life-threatening proposals that are sure to come, we must organize.
It’s time to work, y’all! Hold yourself, your meeting group, and your communities accountable for your impact on the world. As we approach Thanksgiving, what are some ways to prioritize disruptive action? Consider donating funds or resources to the water protectors at Standing Rock (List of opportunities here), or patronizing POC-owned businesses (List of businesses here) on Black Friday. Use the hashtags #nashvilledisrupt & #surjnashville.
All donations from “Where do we go from here?” will be given to future multi-racial, POC-led coalition work emerging from this election. Here are some of the organizations we’ve supported in the past: Black Lives Matter Nashville, Gideon’s Army, & Workers’ Dignity. Special THANK YOU to Cannery Ballroom, the set-up crew, childcare workers, & greeters!
