Resistance, Risk, Loss of Reason, and Beyond — April 30, 2023, 10:30 a.m.

Long time activist and spiritual seeker, Bill Chisholm, will share some of the insights from years of resistance on social and environmental issues, which include sitting through endless public hearings where there was very little listening, arrests and court appearances for direct action, including jail time. He will also share some of what he learned over 16 some runs for public office.

But these are different times, laws have changed, there is more fear and hate being spewed across the political landscape. There has always been risk in resistance, but we now live in an era where “reason” seems to have gone out the window and that will influence the outcome of any resistance, but it shouldn’t deter it. It should only go to expand our abilities.
