A grim new political reality confronts us: A right-wing, volatile and, by all accounts, incompetent President; Republican control of all three branches of government; and 32 states now under GOP administration. Clearly, the Democratic Party has lost more than recent elections: It has lost its focus and footing.

The time is ripe for a new generation of progressive activists, inspired by the values and vision of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, to replace the current oligarchy of mainstream corporate Democrats. What can we do at the grass roots level to make that happen?

Join us to explore how progressives can begin working during the Trump era, starting now, to take over the Democratic Parties of California and the country. What signs indicate that this change is already underway? What can we learn from experienced long-term progressive activists? How can we start building a united coalition, not just to mount resistance to the coming administration, but to effect long-term change? And where should we start pursuing these goals here in the Bay Area?
