As a result we are excited to invite members of the Queen’s and Kingston communities, as well as organizers from across the province to our upcoming Forum on the Rise of the ‘Alt Right’ and their ever increasing work on our campuses and in our communities. This forum seeks to be a space where campus and community organizers from across the province share experiences, stories and tactics in challenging the rise of the so-called alt-right while also building the skills and analysis to contest their organizing.
Join us on Saturday March 18 (noon-6pm, Grant Hall at Queen’s University) while we focus on learning about how the alt-right is building their movement on a foundation white supremacy, misogyny, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and Islamophobia. Further we will hear from campus and community organizers from across Ontario on how the alt-right is organizing, demonizing work for justice, and how progressive organizers are challenging their efforts.
On Sunday March 19 (930am-2pm, in Kingston Hall) the day will start with workshops, skill shares, and opportunities for in depth discussion about tactics and strategies for contesting the alt-right.
This forum is free and open to all. For more information, or to get involved, reach out to info[at]opirgkingston.org. Full forum details, including workshops, guest speakers, and all the sorts will be released in the next few days. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
