  • New and long-time comrades are invited to join a Night School series that engages with Bernie Sanders’s insurgent candidacy within the broader history of socialist strategies and perspectives on electoral politics. Each session features a brief, informal presentation followed by facilitated discussion designed to engage all levels and connect current events to foundational socialist concepts and debates. Comrades are encouraged (but not required) to review recommended readings linked below, aligned with the session topic detailed here. 

    Bernie’s campaign has served as a platform for working class politics in the US for the first time in decades—supplying energy and excitement to the Democratic Party while simultaneously piquing the interests of unengaged voters on a scale that could promise a fundamental change in the political electorate. But what does that change look like, practically? How does that change become permanent? And how do we avoid breaking the promises of political change made by Democrats before? This session will explore what political change could look like under a Sanders presidency and how to take advantage of political opportunities locally. Discussion will also include consideration of forces necessary for social change outside of friendly administrations and within hostile political climates—with a focus on the alliance of labor and immigrant activists that took place in Los Angeles during the 2000’s.

    Recommended readings:

    Obama’s Lost Army by Micah Sifry, (New Republic, 2017)

    How Immigrant Activists Changed Los Angeles, by Manuel Pastor (Dissent, 2015)
