Saturday September 9: PASI General Meeting. Unitarian Church of Staten Island, 312 Fillmore Street (at Clinton Ave). 5:30 to 8 pm. "Trump, White Supremacy, and the Progressive Response"  with historian Debbie-Ann Paige.

In this Presidency, and particularly after Charlottesville, progressives have taken up an intense debate on how to best respond to hate groups and their bold expressions of fascism, racism, anti-Semitism, and misogyny. 

How can progressives and activists act to disrupt and challenge hate? Through video clips and readings, we will explore tactics and perspectives, past and present, and how hate develops and manifests, in hate groups and throughout society.
