Virtual Night School: Is this Our New Deal Moment?


January 27, 2021 at 7:00pm - 8:30pm



The COVID-19 pandemic has been accompanied by a catastrophic economic crisis, prompting many commentators to liken its effects to the Great Depression. Perhaps unsurprisingly, there have also been widespread calls for a broad, transformative approach echoing the New Deal–a series of programs that led to massive shifts in public policy, economics, and labor. Does COVID-19 provide a means for agitating around socialist demands? Should we fight for a NewNew Deal, a new age of public support for the working class? Or, will our moment be remembered as a missed chance, a lost opportunity to challenge the ruling economic ideology?

If you haven't been to a Night School in the past, Night Schools are monthly discussion groups meant to provide a casual setting where we can consider issues related to socialist history, theory, and strategy.

Night Schools are not "schools" in the traditional sense. There are no fees, grades, or prior readings, and all are welcome regardless of previous experience. Join us, whether you're new to DSA or an expert Marxologist!

Night Schools are free and open to all, regardless of previous experience. There are no assigned readings.
