Now What? Defying Trump and the Left's Way Forward was a phone in webinar organized by Freedom Road Socialist Organization in the wake of the 2016 election.

Now what? We’re all asking ourselves that question in the wake of Trump’s victory. We’ve got urgent strategizing and work to do, together. Join Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson of the Movement for Black Lives and Freedom Road, Calvin Cheung-Miaw, Jodeen Olguin-Taylor of Mijente and WFP, Joe Schwartz of the Democratic Socialists of America, and Sendolo Diaminah of Freedom Road for a discussion of what happened, and what we should be doing to build mass defiance. And above all, how do we build the Left in this, which we know is the only solution to the crises we face?

This event will take place Tuesday November 15, 2016 at 9pm Eastern/8pm Central/6pm Pacific.

Those invited, on Facebook included Niall Reddy.[2]

NYU DSA founders

New York University Democratic Socialists of America formed in February 2017, with an organizing committee of just 4 people

“There’s been incredible levels of support and sympathy among students. We just had one meeting and we had I’d say 40 to 50 people and that was organized on a relatively short notice,” said Niall Reddy, a PhD student on the group’s organizing committee. “I’m confident that as the semester goes on we’ll be able to build a message and views and develop our publicity.”

“DSA owes a lot of its recent surge in membership to the Sanders 2016 presidential campaign,” wrote Tisch senior and organizing committee member Cale Brooks in a statement to NYU Local.“In a very different way, it also owes some of its growth to the Trump campaign as well,” he continued, adding that Trump’s election gave the left a heightened sense of urgency “to create a more equitable, peaceful world.”

Ella Wind, a PhD student on New York University Democratic Socialists of America’s organizing committee, told Local she was one of the many that joined after the 2016 election. “I joined, I think, one month after Trump won the election, which I think is a pretty common experience for a lot of people who join DSA,” she said.[4]
