Socialist Politics in the 2019 Chicago Elections

June 27, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0

Socialists now make up 12% of the Chicago City Council, making up a radical core within a larger bloc of progressive aldermen. Although these campaigns each have roots in previous social movement and union struggles, they also benefited from—and offered directions for—the sudden growth of socialism locally and nationally. In this panel, we’ll discuss the histories that led to this moment, the challenges and opportunities of a limited electoral victory for Chicago socialists, and the broader socialist vision that these victories point towards.

Join Solidarity and Chicago DSA this Thursday for a panel on elections and movement-building! Speakers include Alds. Byron Sigcho-Lopez, Rossana Rodriguez, and Jeanette Taylor, and Shaniya Doyle and Ling Young of Southside Together Organizing for Power (STOP). Robin Peterson (Solidarity and DSA) will moderate.

Solidarity is hosting its 2019 Summer School at North Park University Thursday, June 27th through Friday, June 28th, 2019. For more info visit https://solidarity-us.org/summerschool2019/.
