Weekly Activist Events Roundup: No Platform For Fascism

With the country still reeling from the damaging effects of Hurricane Harvey, we can’t help but be reminded of the equally disastrous events in Charlottesville, Virginia, with one caveat: Charlottesville was preventable, to an extent. And while Mother Nature certainly can’t be stopped, humanity can, and it’s in everyone’s best interest to work towards a greater good. With that in mind, we’re bringing you another roundup of this week’s ways to get involved on a local level in NYC; see below.
