“Democratic Socialism.” The phrase is indeed everywhere.
Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and now New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon have claimed the label. Meanwhile, the Democratic Socialists of America has seen its membership explode from 6,000 in summer 2016 to more than 45,000 today. And the political establishment doesn’t quite know what to make of it all.
Please join your fellow comrades as we kick off the fall Night School series with an in-depth discussion on democratic socialist theory and practice.
See the readings that we’ll be discussing after a brief introduction from our members.
