Liberation Forums are back at the @justicecenterenelbarrio newest space at the People's Church! Join us as we kick off the year with a political forum on the MTA and lessons from the Cuban and Haitian revolutions.
The MTA is set to raise fares again in the middle of 2023, meaning New Yorkers could soon be paying $2.90 to ride the subway. Fares could rise as high as $3.05 by 2025 as the MTA struggles to recover from dire business conditions. Why does the MTA even operate like a business, and why do the working people of the city have to pay when its profits go south? What would a New York City with free transportation look like? Join us as we discuss the impact of another fare hike on the working New Yorkers!
What comes to mind when you hear the word “revolution”? There are lessons to learn from the American Revolution, but it only sought freedom for a few. This is in stark contrast to the 1804 Haitian Revolution and the 1959 Cuban Revolution -- revolutions that fought to break the yokes of colonization, slavery and imperialist domination. In both these revolutions, people facing deeply oppressive conditions seized their freedom for themselves and changed the course of history forever. Come to our Liberation Forum to learn more about these inspiring struggles, and why they still matter today!
