A rare public event featuring eminent epidemiologist Richard Levins!
Everyday organizers face challenges that seem contradictory: how do we speak to the needs of the majority of working people when some of us face much more acute challenges than others? How do we build alliances and yet deal with our differences? How do we think about the movement as a whole?
Richard Levins brings decades of thinking about ecological, political, and organizing problems using the dialectical method. In his deft hands, dialectics becomes a practical tool that can offer us ways for thinking through both everyday organizing problems as well as broader theoretical issues. :
