Film screening: ANTIFA

Thursday, March 29, 7pm

Since the election of Donald Trump, acts of racist violence have proliferated across the United States. Racists and misogynists feel emboldened to express and act on their views. White nationalist groups and resurgent traditional white supremacist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan have used Trumps victory to gain new recruits. All that stands in their way are the groups of anarchists, communists, and socialists who have taken it upon themselves to prevent fascism from becoming a powerful political force in the United States. This film tells the story of what “Antifa” is and why people are using these tactics to confront racism and fascism in the US today.

Digital Activism and Antifa: Panel Discussion and Cryptoparty

March 24, 4pm – 6 pm

The resistance movement to fascism and white supremacy is diverse and creative, adapting to increasing threat and propaganda in the digital world.  This panel discussion will explore the resistance to fascism and white supremacy, followed by a Cryptoparty for a hands-on workshop to learn more about the projects discussed. Groups joining us have developed tools that challenge white supremacy with projects that identify and remove online propaganda and through skillshares to enable us to protect ourselves.  Our first hour will be a panel discussion and Q&A.  This will be followed by the Cryptoparty, where we will split into small groups to work with panelists regarding their projects.  Feel free to bring your own laptop!
