It’s been a brutal year since Trump was inaugurated. We have no choice but to keep up the resistance, remain vigilant, and vote in every possible election in 2018.
On the one year anniversary of Trump’s inauguration, Saturday, January 20, communities around the country will gather to reconnect to the roots from which their movements draw strength, discuss the path ahead, and gather resources for prisoners, relief efforts, and ongoing struggles.
In Asheville, Firestorm Cafe and Book Collective are kicking off a week of rebellious activities with a Haywood Road block party to share food, fun, and knowledge. This is a free event open to everyone so bring your friends and let’s talk about where we want to go from here!
