The results of the November presidential election has revitalized active and organized grassroots protests by numerous groups that include Democrats, women’s groups, liberal organizations and others against the current administration.

Thomas F. Corrigan, an assistant professor in the communication studies department at Cal State San Bernardino, said these attempts to change society can also help society understand how power operates.

On Wednesday, March 1, at 3 p.m. in room PL- 4005 of the CSUSB John M. Pfau Library, the CSUSB Diversity Committee will present, “The Point is to Change (and Interpret) It,” featuring Corrigan as the guest speaker.

He will talk about grassroots organizing, using his own experience in launching a local chapter of Indivisible – a national, non-partisan, grassroots movement working to resist the agenda of President Trump by exerting pressure on members of Congress.

His local chapter’s efforts include the satirical #whereispaulcook  “missing persons” campaign on Rep. Paul Cook, (R-Apple Valley)   that was recently featured on the Rachel Maddow Show.
