What Direction for Antiwar and Social Justice Activists in the 2016 elections?
With the end of the Bernie Sanders campaign, many activists are trying to figure out who to support in the presidential elections. Many believe that Hillary Clinton, a candidate who can be elected, is the only way to vote, given the threat of a Trump victory, while others believe that they must vote for a candidate who better expresses their own political views. Please join us for this important discussion.
