New Haven: Stand With Puerto Rico! + 100 yrs since Russian Revolution!
Join us for a community meeting to support Puerto Rico! As the island struggles to recover from Hurricane Maria, the US government is doing nothing -- and in fact is blocking aid to Puerto Rico. But activists and community members from all over the country are mobilizing to help, sending tons of supplies to the island and volunteering on the ground. What can we do here to help? What is the history behind the government's gross negligence? Hear from NYC Puerto Rican activist and Revolutionary Fitness founder Shawn Garcia!
PLUS: This month marks the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution in Russia. Hear about the history of the revolution and the USSR, why it matters today and what we can learn from the Soviet Union's legacy.
Free event! Free parking available in lot and on street. Refreshments served.
