🟥 Red Square #4 🟥 Building Power

September 26 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT

The Red Square Series is a space where CDSA members can learn about the political debates socialists and other radicals and progressives are having, and develop a productive, comradely format for discussion and debate that can both inform members and improve our collective analysis.

This month we will discuss: How and where do we build power as socialists?

In Chicago (and beyond), DSA is doing important work to build toward a socialist future. We’re organizing in a complex political landscape along a number of fronts. Everything feels incredibly urgent.

Everyday we’re collectively making decisions about what work to take on or prioritize. At the same time, our terrain of struggle is defined by material forces that are well outside of our control. This discussion is a space to step back from the rush of our daily organizing work and reflect on what it is we’re trying to do together and what we can do to win our demands.
What is our theory of change? How do we relate to our neighborhoods and communities? The labor movement? Other organizations that may share our immediate goals but have a different long-term project? Elected officials and the state?

What will it take to build the power of the working class to fight capital and win?
