Come to the first in a series over the next year that will bring together old and young social justice activists to “pass it on.” The full project is entitled “Lessons of the Sixties: A History of Local Washington, DC Activism for Peace and Justice from 1960 to Now.”
This first event in the series, moderated by Sabri Ben-Achour, reporter at WAMU 88.5 Public Radio, is a panel discussion about the decline of the newspaper, the rise of social media, and the impact and opportunities these pose for social justice organizing. Including a revealing presentation on how the huge, but little known 1975 strike at the Washington Post crippled unions. There will also be great live entertainment.
