Preparing for the Trump Era: Midwest Tour

How did Trump come to power, and what does that tell us about the era we are entering? What strategies will be effective in countering repressive government policies and the rise of grassroots nationalism? Framing Trump’s victory in a global context, we will explore some of the approaches to self-organization and self-defense that anarchists are employing in various parts of the United States, drawing on the principles of mutual aid and direct action.

This is the second leg of this speaking tour, which has already visited several cities along the East Coast. If you would like to host an event in your town on a future outing, please contact us at
