The Divest Philly from the War Machine Coalition invites you to a book talk event on June 26 about “How the 1% Manipulate Our Understanding of What’s Happening, What’s Right & What’s Possible.” Using timely examples drawn from the realms of militarism, the war economy, climate change, and more, Philly-based author Roy Eidelson will talk us through how we can recognize – and counter – the manipulative appeals that the 1% uses to advance their self-serving agenda. RSVP for this special event!
