It often seems like every week of the Trump administration is the craziest one, but this time we might actually have it. Jeff Sessions has recused himself from any investigations into his contact with the Russian ambassador to the United States, people are calling on Sessions to resign and even Chuck Schumer is owning him on Twitter. So, it's as good a time as ever to jump into some kind of activism against him.

People's March for Education Justice - NYC
Hoo boy, Saturday is going to be a busy day around Trump properties. In addition to the march against the Dakota Pipeline ending at Trump Tower, and the dueling pro-Trump and anti-Trump rallies going on, here's a march demanding that Andrew Cuomo give the state and city billions in promised education funding, end the state's reliance on testing and invest more in social workers and other support staff for schools statewide that will start at the Trump International Hotel. Keeping up pressure on Andrew Cuomo is a backdoor way of increasing pressure on Donald Trump, by reminding him to keep acting like a liberal in the run up to his probable run for presidency.
FREE, Saturday, March 4th, 9:30 a.m., Trump International Hotel and Tower, 1 Central Park West

NY Doesn't Welcome You
There's going to be a pro-Trump rally in front of Trump Tower this weekend. So, you can see where this is going, right? Yes, exactly, there's going to be a counter-demonstration against Trump supporters and against the president himself, reminding him that New York thinks he's the worst. Bring some signs telling him that his hometown doesn't want him around, and maybe if enough people show up he'll just decide to go anywhere else in the future.
FREE, Saturday, March 4th, 11:30 a.m., Corner of East 53rd Street and 5th Avenue

March 4th for Standing Rock
The Water Protecters' camp at Standing Rock may be gone, but since the Dakota Access Pipeline project was revived by the Trump administration, the fight against it will continue.

Fundraiser for Planned Parenthood of Indiana & Kentucky
Here in New York, we're at least doing kind of alright as far as women's health and a woman's right to choose are concerned (we could be doing much better!). So, here's a chance to help out Planned Parenthood in states whose leadership is interested in controlling women's lives through the restriction of what they can do with their bodies. A $20 donation will get you a custom sketch from fashion illustrator Jennifer Lilya, but that's not all! There'll also be a raffle with prizes like tickets to Avenue Q, a private yoga session, a variety pack of vegan jerky and much more. Plus, importantly, there will be alcohol.
$20, Saturday, March 4th, 2 p.m., Precious Metal, 143 Troutman Street

Rapid Response Network: Open House for Crown Heights/ Bed Stuy
If you find yourself trusting the state less and less, here's a chance to help build a support network for vulnerable people that doesn't rely on its institutions. Today's meeting will focus on how to build a Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy network of "rapid responders," people who are building a network of support personnel to help people with mental health crises, basic first aid, defense against Immigration ICE raids, hate attacks, and participate in copwatching.

Building Resistance Propaganda Party
Ain't no party like a propaganda party cause a propaganda party lives forever through its messaging. Sorry, sorry. Anyway, drop by the Interference Archive on Sunday for a chance to learn all about a bunch of groups who are fighting the Tump administration, and pick up their various propaganda in the form of stickers, flyers, buttons and other message-spreading goods. Maybe zines? Probably at least one organization will have a zine.

Sign Making 101: For Women's Strike
If you want to make your own propaganda instead of picking up stuff other people made, here's the place for you. Not only is this an opportunity to hang with people while you make signs for the Women's Strike, but an artist and designer will be on hand to show you how to make "inexpensive, durable, NYPD-compliant protest signs that get your message across." As someone whose terrible handwriting has made his protest signs look more comical than effective propaganda, this seems like a great service.
FREE, Sunday, March 5th, 1 p.m., 205 Hudson Street, 2nd Floor

#NotInOurCity peaceful vigil against attacks on JCCs
An arrest was made for a handful of the bomb threats called in to JCCs across the country, but keep in mind this instance was seen as a copycat crime, there are still almost 100 unsolved cases and there are also the instances of Jewish cemetery desecration. So, come out and stand with the nation's Jewish community in a one hour silent vigil against hate.

How The Left Can Win Elections
Protests are fun and you can meet some cool people and also get some exercise if it's part of a long march. But! Don't forget that the ultimate goal is to actually win some elections and exercise political power. How do you do that though? Well, maybe Zak Wear of the Richmond Progressive Alliance can tell you a thing or two about that, since this event is literally called "How The Left Can Win Elections."
FREE. Sunday, March 5th, 5 p.m., Starr Bar, 214 Starr Street, Brooklyn
