BACK TO THE FUTURE: Opportunities & Challenges for the Grassroots Peace & Justice Movement

With PAUL GEORGE
Director, Peninsula Peace and Justice Center

Ideally, progressive movements look to the future as people organize to demand social change. For the past eight years, however, the peace and justice movement has had to concentrate its efforts on fighting off the most regressive administration in U.S. history. With Bush & Co. now gone from the scene, we can look ahead once again and work to make real our vision of a peaceful, just, and humane world.

There are tremendous opportunities before us. The financial crisis has opened the door to the possibility of fundamental changes to our economic order. If done right, these changes may bring some economic fairness and justice where there has been none. At the same time, we still face challenges from the past eight years. Foremost among these is stopping the promised escalation of the war and occupation in Afghanistan. Opportunity or challenge, the time is now to raise our voices and organize together for a better future.

Paul George is the Director of Peninsula Peace and Justice Center, the San Francisco Peninsula’s leading grassroots activist organization. Paul has been an activist and community organizer for over forty years. In this talk, he will draw on those years of experience to lay out a broad agenda for the peace and justice movement for the coming months and years.
