Socialist Night School – Segregation, Gentrification, and Chicago

May 3 @ 2:00 pm - 4:15 pm CDT

Hello comrades!

Join us for the next session of the Socialist Night School to discuss some of the history and the current reality of segregation and gentrification here in Chicago.

To kick off conversation, we’ll be reading excerpts and articles from Marcuse and Madden, Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, David Harvey, and Beryl Satter. We will send out the link to join over Zoom on the morning of the night school – so be sure to RSVP below!

The Lift the Ban coalition, fighting to lift the ban on rent control and get rental protections in Illinois, will also talk about their work so far and what they are planning next. If you’re interested in what they do, they also have an event coming up on April 30th: https://www.chicagodsa.org/event/lift-the-ban-abcs-what-are-we-yelling-2/

See you soon in the virtual.
