DSA-LA continues to welcome new comrades to our shared struggle, and while many new socialists are familiar with our popular, contemporary demands (e.g. Green New Deal, Housing for All, etc.), not all new radicals have had a chance to discuss and learn about how these demands fit into our ultimate emancipatory political horizon in addition to mitigating the present depredations of capitalism.
With that said, the DSA-LA Political Education Committee is proud to present our Night School for the spring & summer of 2023, Class Struggle and Socialist Strategy.
The 5-part study syllabus includes an introduction to and an examination of various terrains of class struggle: the workplace or points of production, campaigns for decommodified public goods, electoralism, and consciousness raising.
Join the DSA-LA Political Education Committee for our class, Socialist Propaganda and Consciousness Raising. If solidarity and class consciousness are built through struggle, what is the role of socialist propaganda and political education? How and when have ideological interventions and working class self-education popularized socialist ideas that challenge capitalist hegemony and prompted workers to imagine, build and fight for a new political horizon?
We will be meeting over Zoom.
