At 10:15 a.m. on Sunday, July 13 at the Upper Delaware Unitarian Universalist service, local activist and writer, Skip Mendler, will be leading an interactive discussion on the topic “If You Can Keep It: A Handy Guide to the Prevention and Early Detection of American Fascism.”

His presentation, based on a forthcoming book of the same title, will explore the origins and meanings of the word “fascism,” the traits of fascist states, and practical strategies that citizens can use to counteract the development of fascism in the USA.

Mendler suggests a “public health” model that views fascism as a “disease of the body politic” with not only identifiable symptoms, but also specific means of prevention.

A Quaker, Green Party activist and co-founder of Waynepeace, Skip also writes the “Peace and Justice Files” column for The River Reporter.
