From an email:

“The ACLU of the District of Columbia partnered with Law 4 Black Lives DC and Black Lives Matter DC to create a guide to help protestors prepare for demonstrations around inauguration weekend. They are also recommending people download a mobile justice app to record any questionable conduct by law enforcement.

From DCMJ (“fighting for equal rights for cannabis users, growers, and their families in the District of Columbia”):

“You are cordially invited to join DCMJ for the inaugural #Trump420 taking place on January 20, 2017 in Washington, DC!

We will gather on the west side of Dupont Circle at 8am for coffee & tea and parade down to the National Mall at 10am. Along the way we’ll hand out 4,200 joints of legally grown cannabis! At 4 minutes and 20 seconds into President Trump’s speech we’ll light up! (unless President Trump comes out now in support of full cannabis legalization in all 50 States and DC!) (more…)

The National Park Service has not denied their permit to use the Lincoln Memorial and will continue to work with all of those who have permit requests pending for that space on January 21. (more…)

It was out of this confusion and fear that WTF Now? was born.

Over a period of weeks, moderator Todd Kliman and a wide array of distinguished thinkers will try to contextualize the Trump phenomenon in American and world history, and to examine the social, cultural, economic, philosophical, political, ethical, moral, and linguistic ramifications and implications of a Trump presidency.
