No is Not Enough - Resisting Trump's Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need
by Naomi Klein

Naomi Klein

Naomi Klein is a Canadian author, social activist, and filmmaker known for her political analyses and criticism of corporate globalization and of capitalism. She is currently the Gloria Steinem Chair in Media, Culture, and Feminist Studies at Rutgers University, a three-year appointment. She first became known internationally for her book No Logo; The Take, a documentary film about Argentina's occupied factories, written by her, and directed by her husband Avi Lewis; and significantly for The Shock Doctrine, a critical analysis of the history of neoliberal economics that was adapted into a six-minute companion film by Alfonso and Jonás Cuarón, as well as a feature-length documentary by Michael Winterbottom.

Shock politics didn't start with the 45th president. Discuss how we got to our current national predicament.
How is this administration addressing climate change?
Does the US need a climate refugee plan? Why and where?
What is the leap Manifesto? What does it teach us and call us to do here in Colorado?
