This event is the second in a two-part mini-series on race, class, and the socialist struggle against racial oppression. This class will build on the concepts of the first class, focusing on socialism and the struggle against racial oppression via a discussion of the US police state. We’ll discuss how democratic socialists can put theory into practice to most effectively combat police violence and mass incarceration.

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 this issue are warmly invited.
