Gentrification, displacement and sky-rocketing rents. We’ve all been talking about it and now its time to DO SOMETHING about it. Proposition 10 is a historic opportunity to take on the biggest barrier to winning for real housing justice with the repeal of the Republican backed 1995 bill the Costa Hawkins Rental Housing Act. Backed by corporate landlords and real estate billionaires, the opposition to Prop 10 is raising BIG money to fight us – but WE ARE IN THE MAJORITY and with all of your help we can win!

It’s 2018 and socialism is ascendant. More and more people are standing up to say that they’ve had enough with a system that puts profit over people, that puts the wealth of the few over the dignity and flourishing of the many. Democratic socialists all over the country are fighting for an improved and expanded Medicare-for-All healthcare system, a federal jobs guarantee, universal rent control, tuition-free public education pre-K through college or trade school, a powerful, militant labor movement, and the abolishment of ICE. We’re winning elections, we’re building explicitly … Continued

Sep 18 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Over the past few years the term “neoliberalism” has become ubiquitous. But what is it exactly?

What is the relationship of neoliberalism to capitalism itself? How can democratic socialists best fight back against neoliberalism? Please join us as we grapple with these questions and many others!
