Night School: What is Democratic Socialism?


February 23, 2022 at 7:00pm - 8:30pm

In recent years, socialism has reemerged as a central framework in discussions of the ongoing political, economic, and social crises facing Americans. DSA has exponentially grown in size since 2015, its ranks swelling with activists interested in building a better world. Though “democratic socialism” has reentered public discourse, there remains much debate about what the term actually means.

This session of the Night School is centered around three questions: Why should we oppose capitalism—a system hostile to both democracy and freedom? How would a socialist society organize complicated systems of production and distribution in a more just way than capitalism? And most urgently, what should democratic socialists be doing to get us beyond our present conditions?

Join us to discuss democratic socialism and what DSA wants to accomplish as an organization.

Will you come?
