“How to Read a Protest: The Art of Organizing and Resistance” with Author L. A. Kauffman

April 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

In L.A. Kauffman’s new book, How to Read a Protest: The Art of Organizing and Resistance, the mobilizing coordinator of the 2003-2004 Iraq War protests explains what makes today’s grassroots resistance different from past movements in America. When millions of people took to the streets for the 2017 Women’s Marches, there was an unmistakable air of uprising, a sense that these marches were launching a powerful new movement to resist a dangerous presidency. But the work that protests do often can’t be seen in the moment. It feels empowering to march, and record numbers of Americans have joined anti-Trump demonstrations, but when and why does marching matter? What exactly do protests do, and how do they help movements win?
