Socialist Night School: Housing Justice

July 12, 2018

All are welcome to join East Bay DSA's ongoing Socialist Night School for this special evening on housing politics, in connection with our chapter's campaign to repeal Costa-Hawkins and win universal rent control and social housing in California.

This class will focus on

  • Socialist analysis of the housing crisis in the East Bay
  • A review of real-world triumphs on social housing
  • Strategy discussion on how Costa-Hawkins repeal can help unite a mass working-class tenant movement able to systemically kick landlord butt

Aside from a short opening lecture, the bulk of class time will be spent in small group facilitated discussions. We'll provide a short set of readings here beforehand, and we encourage all participants to read them before class. Members and non-members of any experience and knowledge level on housing politics are all warmly invited.

Required Readings

See the readings that we'll be discussing after a brief introduction from our members.
