Last week, NRA president Wayne LaPierre told an extremely credulous crowd that he believes paid protesters fighting the Trump administration are making $1500 per week. Sadly, this isn't true (though if it is, please give me some money), but if everyone out there is making conservative activists this crazy, you're doing something right. Keep it up at the following events this week:

Journalism in the Age of Trump
If the president is defining journalism as one of the evils plaguing the country, something has gone seriously wrong. Listen to a panel of journalists (Bill Moyers, the New York Times' Dean Baquet, EmergingUS Jose Antonio Vargas Vice News' Shawna Thomas and Slate's Jacob Weisberg) talk about the role and responsibility of the press in this new age in America. Get there early, because it's first come, first seated.

Disability Day Of Mourning
Republican changes to the ACA, a plan that's widely seen as handing money from poor to rich and has been pegged even by some Republicans as a plan that will cover fewer Americans than the ACA, will invariable hit disabled people hard. As will the Trump administration's general attitude towards helping pretty much anyone. Join the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network in a vigil for disabled people lost to violence from their caretakers last year and then gear up for the fight ahead in a worse healthcare climate.

Demystifying Government: Executive Shenanigans

Trumpland: an Exhibition Opening by Salim Hasbini
Want to re-live the empty, nightmarish hours in the immediate aftermath of Donald Trump becoming president of the United States?

Rally for a #FairWorkWeek & Fast Food Worker Empowerment
Andrew Puzder may have taken his burger and gone home and fast food workers will (eventually) get a $15 minimum wage in the city and state, but there's still work that has to be done on their behalf. Today's rally at City Hall will focus on ending the practice of last-second scheduling changes in the fast food industry, so that employees can actually you know, live their lives, without worrying about being suddenly summoned to work.
FREE, Friday, March 3rd, 9 a.m., City Hall

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, 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 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
