Talk and Q&A with free food!

How can progressive social movements turn government repression into an opportunity? Wayne Hsiung will combine his background in law and behavioral economics with cutting edge social science to analyze his own confrontations with the FBI and city governments, charting a course for nonviolent movements to make the most of our divisive political moment.

The CU Vegan Justice League and DxE Colorado join the CU Cultural Events Board to welcome Wayne Hsiung, co-founder of Direct Action Everywhere (DxE), one of the most dynamic grassroots organizations in the world. In just 5 explosive years, DxE has dominated national headlines, changed laws, and laid the groundwork for a mass movement for animal personhood.
