Solidarity, not Charity - Mutual Aid” now and forever

With a speaker from Kensington Windsor Terrace Mutual Aid
Kensington Windsor Terrace Mutual Aid is a grassroots group that formed to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. They are organized horizontally through a practice of collaborative decision-making. It is a priority to explore and deepen mutual aid practices and to resist the pull of non-profit-ization. Mutual Aid work is a loose network of solidarity premised on the belief that everyone has something to give and everyone needs support.

Hack the Senate
Nov 8 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Hack the Senate

The unrepresentative nature at the federal level of the US Government is well known. Created in the Eighteenth Century, the US Constitution vests an inordinate amount of power in the US Senate—a place where the vote of one person from Wyoming has the same weight as 70 people from California. A solution that to this undemocratic arrangement, that also dramatically alters the Electoral College, was created by the Coalition to Hack the Senate. Their solution, unlike others in the mainstream, does not require a constitutional amendment. Dwight Panozzo, the founder of the Coalition will speak to us about the Coalition’s idea. More information about the Coalition and their proposal can be found at hackthesenate.org.

Dwight Panozzo, PhD, LCSW is an adjunct assistant professor of social work at New York University and a clinician in private practice. His social justice work began with gun violence prevention protesting after the Sandy Hook massacre. It included work with the Brady campaign and Gays Against Guns. A problem solver by nature, Dwight recognized that nothing was being achieved at the federal level to stem gun violence and, in particular, the US Senate was the stumbling block. This led him to conceptualize the Amalgamation and New State Formation Process which lies at the heart of the Hack the Senate movement.
