Building Resistance/Alternat­ives to the Administration’s Plan for America

Richard Hobbs

August 27, 2017

This operational blueprint for a radical new economy and society will be anchored not only in participatory democracy but in participatory human need fulfilling activity, from self and family care to necessary labor with reduced working hours to the time and space for self-realization. Don’t miss this holistic systemic transformational approach to reshaping the future of the United States.

Richard Hobbs is the Executive Director of Human Agenda, a national board member of Take Back Your Time, an immigration attorney and member of the legal collective CLARO (Colectivo Legal Accesible Razonable y Organizado), and member of the newly forming South Bay Progressive Alliance.

Eyewitness to Central America

Barby Ulmer

August 20, 2017

Barby Ulmer with husband Vic (now deceased) were the founders and co-directors of Our Developing World. Formed in 1982, the non-profit organization strives to raise awareness of the struggles and triumphs occurring in developing countries by creating resources for teachers, hosting events, and leading educational trips to various countries in Central America, Southeast Asia and Africa.

She will focus in this talk (which will include slides) on Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala, and will discuss the historical background of similarities of U.S. policy toward these countries and exploitation by U.S. & Canadian corporations, recent struggles and victories there, and what can be done. She will end with a discussion of the Mayan System of Justice, which the speaker finds inspiring.
