This month marks one year since the election of Donald Trump. The Laura Flanders Show released a special report at that time in which we asked our guests to reflect on social change. How it happens, how it doesn’t, what they planned to do the day after the election to keep resistance movements alive and what they do to support their own spirits. One year later those questions matter more than ever, and our guests this week have their own take. Our studio guest is Reverend Jacqui Lewis of Middle Collegiate Church, she was a contributor to the 2017 collection Faith and Resistance in the Age of Trump. Then Adrienne Maree Brown, whom we caught up with in Detroit. She’s the author of Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds.
