Speakers:
Lilia D. Monzo
Rene Moya

As the effects of the global capitalist crisis persist, racist and xenophobic ideologies have been newly thrust into the spotlight. Although immigration from Mexico has nearly evaporated since the start of the Great Recession, it became a centerpiece of Trump’s presidential campaign. Plans for a Wall on the southern border continue to be proposed. Perhaps most startling of all, immigration officers feel emboldened to step up deportations of children, women, and men at a moment when explicitly racist political positions, once deemed fringe, are now openly discussed and reported on.

At this meeting, we confront the new challenges these developments bring with an eye to understanding and engaging the logic of social movements, especially those around immigration, labor, and people of color.

Lilia D. Monzo teaches at Chapman University, where she uses Marxist-Humanist and decolonial approaches to confront capitalism and imperialism, racism, and the hyper-exploitation of women of color, while envisioning a socialist alternative. She has published in such journals as POSTCOLONIAL DIRECTIONS IN EDUCATION and TRUTHOUT.

Rene Moya is a Los Angeles-based socialist and immigrant rights activist

Sponsored by the West Coast Chapter, International Marxist-Humanist Organization
