June 28, Thursday — General Meeting

6 p.m. social and town square / 7 p.m. speaker at the Event Center
Speaker: Yoni Landau

Yoni Landau is a former White House Office of Management and Budget and Robert Reich staffer. Landau co-founded CoFED, a non-profit campus food co-op before co-founding Rapid Resist in 2017. Its website states, in part, that, “Our theory of change is that local organizing efforts will build the long-term people power necessary to stop autocracy. We have the capacity to build those organizations now.” In a January 9, 2018, Wall Street Journal article, Landau stated, "We assess who the critical lawmakers are who can stop Trump, find the critical moments that can be influenced by their voters, and then send large amounts of text messages to turn out crowds of people in those places to tell them not to support Trump’s agenda."

They head north and travel through Mexico to the United States, arriving in Los Angeles after an arduous journey. The origins of El Norte are the director's experiences. El Norte received an Oscar nomination for  Best Original Screen Play in 1985, the first American independent film to be so honored.
