In conjunction with the States of Incarceration exhibit, Mobilizing Resistance Against White Nationalism is a public forum that seeks to provide concrete intersectional strategies and tactics for resistance to the threat to rescind DACA, and the increasingly robust efforts by the Trump administration to detain, deport and ban a wide variety of immigrants. The forum will also explore the administration’s policies and enforcement priorities as a symptom of the increasingly visible and influential white nationalist movement in the United States.
