Trump's first months in office has involved a kind of “shock and awe” politics designed to go after vulnerable sections of our society—Mexican and other immigrants, Muslims and migrants, LBGTQ people and women, African Americans and unions. In his first days in office, his attempt to impose a Muslim ban prompted immediate emergency response demonstrations at the airports, and there have been some emergency protests against the arrest, detention, and deportation of immigrants. This is an important start, but we’ve yet to build a fully effective web of emergency response networks capable of challenging Trump at every step. This workshop will talk about the experience so far, the ways to build and sustain such networks, and why they continue to be crucial to fighting the right-wing attacks.
