ARC Speaker Series: Former Political Prisoner Daniel McGowan

If a Tree FallsCOMMITTED TO THE STRUGGLE: Former Political Prisoner Daniel McGowan on Repression and Radical Activism under Trump

Daniel McGowan is a social justice activist from NYC whose arrest and conviction for “eco-terrorism” in 2005 became a flashpoint in the Green Scare repression of environmental and animal rights activist communities. His story is the focus of the Academy Award nominated documentary film If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front (2011). (A free screening of the film will be held several weeks before the talk).

Daniel will be speaking about his own personal history and sharing novel approaches to movement building and radical activism under the Trump administration.

This free talk is Friday, May 12 at 7:00-9:00 PM at Walker United Methodist Church, 3104 16th Ave. S in Minneapolis. Childcare will be provided. The space is wheelchair accessible (via a ramp), and American Sign Language interpretation will be available.
