Socialist Night School Working Group

Description:

STL DSA is launching a summer school edition of the Socialist Night School!

We’ll be meeting every other Tuesday night from 7 - 8:30 pm, CT, over Zoom from June 1 through July 27. This night-school series is intended to create a climate of political discussion, comradely debate, and shared understanding. Our classes will provide a unique educational atmosphere — one detached from the dominant, competitive for-profit model and rooted in the political struggles of working people. Everyone is welcome to come to any of the sessions. Please feel free to invite family and/or friends, as well.

Each night school event will come with short readings to help ground our discussions. Here’s the lineup, below. Click on the weeks you want to attend, and then RSVP!

Week 1 on June 1 — Actually Existing Capitalism: Anatomy of a System in Crisis

Week 2 on June 15 — Race & Class

Week 3 on June 29 —  What is Ideology?

Week 4 on July 13 —  Theories of Social Change

Week 5 on July 27 — Socialist Futures

In addition to the series, we’re looking for both Organizers and Facilitators for Socialist Night School: 

Being an organizer is simple: the goal is moving people to show up! This means doing the outreach work necessary to get people to attend and become invested in Socialist Night School. Basically, if you sign up as an organizer, you'll be responsible for emailing, texting, calling, and messaging folks who have indicated they're interested in attending. Sign up to become an organizer here.

Being a facilitator entails doing the reading ahead of time and helping lead breakout groups during the class. We are hosting a Facilitation Training on May 24 from 7 - 8 pm, CT to go over details of how to facilitate these breakout sessions, as well as answer any questions you have. Please RSVP here if you have interest in being a facilitator.
