What Happens AFTER Election Day? (Online): While keeping people focused on a strong, robust election process where everyone votes and everyone's votes are counted is a must, many of us are also thinking about November 4th. What happens AFTER election day? We're hoping for an anti-Trump landslide and a peaceful transition, but we're also preparing for a contested election or something much worse. Join 350Brattleboro and allies for an interactive workshop to discuss the main scenarios that national movement groups think are the most possible outcomes and to brainstorm with our community about what we’d want to do right here in Brattleboro. Ideas may range from direct action to mutual aid to healing circles to protests in the street - we don’t know what we'll come up with (or what will happen) but we do know we'll need some way to be in community for it. Come with your affinity group or others you'd want to organize with - or by yourself with your ideas! Start thinking about what you will need in that chaotic time and connect with others who are thinking similarly. 6 - 8 p.m. Hosted by Root Social Justice Center, Lost River Racial Justice, The Tenants Union of Brattleboro.
