Join the Gray Panthers of San Francisco and other groups for a post-election roundtable discussion of power in the United States; where it resides, who has it, and what it’s likely to mean in the next period.

The 2016 election has been called the most important election since 1932, but why? Looming issues range from the future of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid and the influence of Peter Peterson, former Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations, to the developing collision course with Russia and China, and the influence of the Pentagon generals urging escalation in Syria. What will be the role of transnational finance and trade agreements? At what point does a covert police state become overt, and what are its implications for domestic surveillance, militarized policing, and mass incarceration?

The Clinton defeat and Trump victory has come as a shock. What forces were at play among voters? How serious a split does this represent among ruling forces?

With analysts like these sitting at the same table, you can be sure this will be an afternoon of important political discussion. Please join us.
