Socialist School

Socialist Night School is the current incarnation of East Bay DSA's political education program. These meetings provide opportunities for East Bay DSA members to ground their political work in the rich theoretical and historical traditions of the socialist left.

Meetings are down-to-earth, inclusive spaces that give East Bay comrades a chance to grow their politics together, regardless of tendency or background knowledge. Topics include fundamental concepts such as class, surplus value, exploitation, and dispossession, alongside exploratory dives into the future of capitalism and the role of state power in building socialism.

This series is open to all East Bay DSA members, but we especially encourage comrades who self-identify as other than white cis/het male to take part. We also ask that members be willing to commit to attending a majority of the classes.
