Visions of 2018
In many ways, 2017 was a year of reaction -- and necessarily so. The president who was inaugurated at the beginning of that year came into office with an agenda so harmful that defense needed to be the first line of action for many organizers around the country. In 2018, while such defense continues to be an urgent priority, more conversations are bubbling up that extend beyond the idea of “resistance.” In Truthout's new series, Visions of 2018, we asked activist leaders to address the questions: What would you like to see created, built or begun this year? What should we work to bring into being? Each of the pieces in this series will focus on an idea for transformation, to give us fuel as we embark on the journey of the coming year. We hope you’ll join us!
