DSA-LA Socialist Day School
DSA-LA’s Political Education Committee is excited to invite all DSA-LA members and DSA-curious folks to a SOCIALIST DAY SCHOOL on November 10th-11th! The event will run from 6:30-9:30PM on the 10th and from 9:30AM-4:00PM on November 11.
Modeled after NYC’s Socialist Day School, this event promises the opportunity for new and seasoned socialists alike to come together for engaging speakers and discussion with comrades on topics like:
What is Socialism? Can it replace capitalism?
How have people struggled for socialism in U.S. history?
What have been their victories and their defeats, and what can we learn from their stories?
Opening Speaker: Suzi Weissman, from KPFK
The Debs Era through the 1930s: Mass Disruption & the Logic of Social Change
Political Lessons from the Civil Rights & Anti-War Movements
Socialists & Labor Militancy in the 1970s and Beyond
Social Democracy in the Shadow of Reagan: The Early Days of DSA
The Next Left: The Tasks of Socialists in a Turbulent World
