Talking About what Drives People to Engage

I had the pleasure of speaking at the Arab American Institute’s Generation Event last night to discuss social change in America. It was a wonderful opportunity to talk with people who are thinking about civic participation in America today and to share the results of my work on the Resistance.

Chapter 2: Resistance in the Streets goes live this weekend.  I plan to post it on Saturday morning before I head out to survey participants at the Women’s March on Washington 2018.  Although the event in DC won’t turn out the huge crowds we saw last year, I am heartened to see that people are planning to march this year in their own communities.  More than 250 events have been scheduled to take place around the US to commemorate the anniversary of the Women’s March.
