Socialist Night School: Eco-Socialism and the Green New Deal

April 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join your comrades for a night school class on April 7th at 1pm at the UE Hall, 37 S Ashland for the first class of our Spring Semester! If you’re interested in attending, please RSVP here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdXsYqLTxq_Ydjwt5q-An395nj6UrFnx7f4Ri_u83vl_Vgrdw/viewform?usp=sf_link

We’ll be reading the texts below (if you can’t make it through all of them, just do your best!). We will be discussing the Green New Deal and how environmentalism intersects with socialism. Our classes are intended to foster discussion and help us all understand the texts and each other better. See you there!
