The workshop will focus on people’s initial reactions to the impact of the election process and its outcome on various aspects of social life: the future of democracy, voting rights, workers’ rights, health, the environment, economic, social and racial justice, international relations, immigration policy, promoting a progressive agenda, and other issues facing our society and the world community. A series of speakers will briefly present their perspectives on these issues, following which there will be an exchange of ideas among the speakers and workshop attendees. The annual ClassCrits members’ business meeting will follow the workshop.
