iPost event on Trump impact

Those fighting for social justice are understandably anxious on the cusp of Donald Trump’s inauguration as president.

What’s in store and how should advocates of social justice respond?

Investigative Post is hosting a panel discussion to consider those questions Wednesday, Jan. 18, at 7 p.m., at Allen Street Hardware, 245 Allen Street.

Editor Jim Heaney will moderate a panel discussion that will include Shaketa Redden of Just Resisting, Gamileh Jamil of ACCESS WNY, and Erin Heaney of Showing Up for Racial Justice, and formerly with the Clean Air Coalition of WNY.

Topics up for discussion include racial justice; immigration; the environment; women’s rights; drug enforcement and sentencing reform; and income inequality, organized labor and other economic justice issues.

Tickets can be purchased online and, if still available, at the door. The cost is $10 for non-members and Investigative Post Bronze members and free for Silver, Gold and Platinum members.
