Event description

Description

How can the left develop more robust strategies to undermine and disrupt the powerful ascendance of the U.S. Right, and build a transformative intersectional social justice agenda that encompasses reproductive justice, LGBTQ rights, racial and immigrant justice, civil liberties, and economic justice? Tarso Luís Ramos, Executive Director of Political Research Associates and BCRW Social Justice Institute Activist in Residence (2016-2018), will present research and strategies, pose ongoing critical questions, and facilitate a discussion with leading organizers and scholars in these fields.

About the Speakers

Tarso Luís Ramos is Executive Director of Political Research Associates. Under his leadership, PRA has expanded existing lines of research documenting right wing attacks on reproductive, gender and racial justice by launching several new initiatives on subjects that include the export of U.S.-style homophobic campaigns abroad, the spread of Islamophobia, and the Right’s investment in redefining religious liberty toward discriminatory ends. Before joining PRA, Ramos served as founding director of Western States Center’s Racial Justice Program, which works to oppose racist public policy initiatives and support progressive people of color-led organizations. As director of the Wise Use Public Exposure Project in the mid-’90s, he tracked the Right’s anti-union and anti-environmental campaigns.
