A Post-Election Progressive Political Roundtable organized in San Francisco on Saturday, November 19, 2016 to discuss: When The Election Dust Settles, Who Really Runs the United States.
Held at the University of San Francisco, this exceptional public forum featured guest speakers Laurence Shoup, Peter Dale Scott, Stephen Zunes, David Talbot, Peter Phillips, with additional comments by Lotus Fong & Ron Dicks, and pertinent audience questions.
Discussion focused on various aspects of Donald Trump's unprecedented ascension to power as president-elect of the United States: why this happened, the political landscape we find ourselves in as a result, the pushback we’ve seen from the left so far, and what can progressives do in response.
Many different opinions, concerns, informed perspectives, and recommended next steps were considered, but on one point no one disagreed: this is a very serious situation calling for urgent & coordinated resistance.
Event was organized by Gray Panthers of San Francisco and co-sponsored by Progressive Democrats of America-San Francisco, San Francisco Berniecrats, and San Francisco Vision.
