Sarah Jaffe, author of Americans In Revolt

Independent journalist Sarah Jaffe recently released Necessary Trouble: Americans In Revolt, a look at the recent rise of political activism across the country. Through extensive research and over one hundred interviews, Jaffe argues that the 2008 economic crisis set off a series of political movements – directly and indirectly – which led to the simultaneous rise of economic protests on multiple sides of the political spectrum. Take Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party, both of which drew followers who saw themselves as powerless against larger economic forces. After an emotionally crippling election season, this may be the last thing you want to hear about, but if you’re ready for it, Jaffe will be in conversation with Providence-based journalist Daniel Denvir.
