Announcing the Activist Graduate School Symposium:

Why Do Protests Fail?

August 17, 6-8 pm

543 W 42nd St, New York

Don't miss this revolutionary discussion with Dr. Lenora Fulani, Alicia Garza, Souta Calling Last and Micah White on the pressing question:

Why Do Protests Fail?

Drawing on their pivotal experiences running for president as a third-party candidate, sparking Black Lives Matter, asserting indigenous rights, and co-founding Occupy Wall Street, these thoughtful activists will confront head-on the reasons that protests fail. Is it a lack of demands? Police repression? Absence of leadership? Or something deeper?

Understanding why protests fail is an effective way to equip tomorrow's activists for revolution.

When: August 17, 2018 at 6pm

Where: Demonstration Room, 543 W 42nd St, New York, NY 10036

Cost: Free
