L.A. Kauffman presents How to Read a Protest: The Art of Organizing and Resistance
In conversation with Murad Awawdeh and Leslie Cagan
Wine reception to follow
Grassroots organizer and movement journalist L.A. Kauffman comes to Greenlight to present How to Read a Protest, which delves into the history of America’s major demonstrations, beginning with the legendary 1963 March on Washington, to reveal the ways protests work and how their character has shifted over time. The book sheds new light on the catalytic power of collective action and the decentralized, bottom-up, women-led model for organizing that has transformed what movements look like and what they can accomplish. Kauffman discusses the book and surrounding issues with Murad Awawdeh, Director of Political Engagement at the New York Immigration Coalition, and veteran grassroots organizer Leslie Cagan.
