"Social Justice Organizing in the Age of Trump." Guest Speaker: Andy Mager, Project Coordinator for Rise Up, a project of the Syracuse Center for Peace and Social Justice.

Here in Central New York and across the country there has been a massive upsurge in activism since the 2016 Presidential election and resulting shifts in policy. Locally, people have organized to protect immigrants and refugees, maintain healthcare, safeguard gains made by women, people of color and other targeted groups, defend democracy and more. This Conversation will look at lessons learned here in Central New York and recommend paths forward for community organizers and activists seeking to work effectively. 

Andy Mager is the coordinator of RiseUp Social Action Training and Education. A longtime activist here in Central New York, Andy works at Syracuse Cultural Workers and organizes with the Syracuse Peace Council and the CNY Solidarity Coalition. 

Conversations in Conflict Studies is a weekly educational speaker series for students, faculty, and the community. The series, sponsored by PARCC, draws its speakers from Syracuse University faculty, national and international scholars and activists, and PhD students. Pizza is served.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
