Webinar Wednesday: Countering White Nationalism in 2021 And Beyond
Feb 3 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Dr. Joan Braune and Kate Bitz will update the PJALS membership on some of the major issues facing our communities since the January 6th white nationalist insurrection at the US Capitol. We’ll discuss what we’ve lived through in the past four years as well as some possibilities for how to think about this urgent problem as we step into the future. We will also address what we can learn from the history of the Northwest’s resistance to white nationalist activity, current white nationalist and fascist organizing approaches that we will need to respond to, and limitations of “domestic war on terror” approach to combating this threat  Register at:  https://secure.everyaction.com/1053s0yNx06XUaRxdtNA-w2
