Preparing for the Future

As Donald Trump continues to announce his nominations for cabinet members and plans to embark tomorrow on a "victory tour" to such places as Ohio and Indiana, the media struggles with the question of whether or not Trump's tweets constitute news, and the re-count effort in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania moves ahead, many of us are still stunned and uneasy about the future. If you need a place "to decompress and get debriefed on where we are, what it means, and how we can move forward," tonight's gathering upstairs at Helsinki Hudson may be just the thing. Called Where Do We Go from Here? The Future of the Hudson Valley After a Trump Victory, the event offers a lineup of speakers:
Zack Smith, from the Bernie Sanders Network, who will provide an update on Our Revolution in New York
Virginia Martin, Democratic Commissioner of Elections for Columbia County
Jody Bolluyt, owner/manager of Roxbury Farm, who works closely with the Rural Migrant Ministry
Joseph Best, immigration attorney whose practice currently handles primarily potential deportees
Martha Harvey, executive director of the Hudson Pride Foundation and City of Hudson Police Commissioner
Jan Storm, educator and outreach coordinator for the Columbia County Chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby
Devin McConnell, who will speak about nonviolent resistance education and organization
The event begins at 6 p.m. Click here for more information.

  1. I need a safe space. This is ridiculous. I hope they have enough trophies to hand out to all attendees.
