Socialist Night School: Medicare for All After Bernie @ ONLINE, VIA 'ZOOM'
Jun 2 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Socialist Night School: Medicare for All After Bernie @ ONLINE, VIA 'ZOOM'
RSVP: https://www.eastbaydsa.org/events/1296/2020-06-02-socialist-night-school-medicare-for-all-after-bernie/ This pandemic lays bare how broken our market-based healthcare system is, as millions of Americans lose their employer-sponsored insurance and lack access to testing and treatment for COVID-19.

Capitalism is the Virus, Housing is the Cure: Candlelight Vigil & Noise Demo 8:00 pm
Capitalism is the Virus, Housing is the Cure: Candlelight Vigil & Noise Demo @ Harvey Milk Center for the Arts, Duboce Park

Instead, she has chosen to leave thousands of our neighbors on the streets without access to bathrooms, basic hygiene, or shelter. Leaving people outside is inexcusable at any time. Doing so during a global pandemic is absolutely unconscionable. We need safe and permanent housing for all San Franciscans. We can’t wait another day! … Continued
