Gaza and US Politics in the Shadow of MAGA

with cohost
Article published:

Since the latest round of violence exploded in the Israel-Palestine conflict October 7, progressives in the US have been grappling with a set of complicated challenges. How can we build pressure for a ceasefire and an end to US blank-check support for Israeli apartheid while increasing our chances of beating the MAGA Right in the 2024 election? How can we broaden the already unprecedented grassroots actions demanding a change in US policy while acting electorally to defend every congressmember who has backed a ceasefire?

Join Maurice Mitchell, National Director of the Working Families Party; Lara Kiswani, Executive Director of the Arab Resource and Organizing Center; and Max Elbaum of the Convergence Editorial Board for a livestream panel addressing these questions. Maya Schenwar, Director of the Truthout Center for Grassroots Journalism, will moderate the discussion, which will take place on Monday, Dec. 11 at 8pm ET/ 7pm CT/ 5pm PT.
