If Mr. Trump is actually inaugurated on Jan. 20 as President of the United States of America, those of us living in and around San Diego will hold and emergency Teach-In two days later on Sunday, Jan.22 in Balboa Park to find positive alternatives to his sinister visions. Together we will exchange ideas; together we will make new friends; together we will laugh and cry; and together we will share skills, food, and music. Most importantly, together we will begin building the world-wide resistance of ordinary people whose dignified rage will make our positive alternatives real. The day’s format will be simple, inclusive, and effective. Every hour on the hour throughout the day, interactive panel discussions will explore the most pressing issues of our times, others will share specific skills, cook great food, and offer inspiring performances of poetry, music, and theatre. Today we invite you to organize one of the core panel discussions. Already individuals and organizations have committed to organize panels and break-out sessions addressing food, work, communications, poetry, alternative economics, powerful praryers, Zapatista 101, police/prison, bike transportation, music, street puppet construction, elections have consequences, and international trade agreements. Others have suggested additional panels (again we invite you to organize one yourself) including health, climate change, housing, anti-racism, LBGT, Standing Rock, civil/human rights, community defense/rapid response, Palestine, the commons, elections, students, education, and peace. As you can see there’s lot of work still needed to plan effective alternatives to the first 100 days of Trump – and beyond. But together we are making it happen. Please consider organizing a one-hour panel discussion for the Teach-In on Sunday, Jan. 22, 2017. Again, thank you for your dignified rage and thank you for your commitment to take action during these hard times. We look forward to working with you in the coming weeks to build an incredible event on Sunday, Jan. 22 in Balboa Park at the Worldbeat Cultural Center and the Centro Cultural de la Raza. ps.
