Authoritarian Candidates in the Nation and in Wisconsin -- Are We Dealing with Rising Fascism?

Sunday, 5:00-6:30 pm, February 4th, 2024, we are  proud to present our speakers:

Ruth Ben-Ghiat, Professor of History and Italian Studies at New York University

Professor Ben-Ghiat is the recipient of Guggenheim and other fellowships, an advisor to Protect Democracy, and an MSNBC opinion columnist, with a focus on fascism, authoritarianism, propaganda, and democracy protection She appears frequently on MSNBC, PBS, and other networks. Her latest book, Strongmen: Mussolini to the Present (2020; paperback with a new epilogue, 2021), examines how illiberal leaders use corruption, violence, propaganda, and machismo to stay in power, and how resistance to them has unfolded over a century. 

Chris Larson, Wisconsin State Senator, District 7

Senator Larson will discuss Wisconsin's own local versions of Strongmen Who Threaten Democracy. Can we unseat them and restore balance and democracy to the state?
