Socialist Night School: School to Prison Pipeline and Organizing for the Common Good

November 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm CST

At this Socialist Night School, we will be discussing the “Bargaining for the Common Good” framework that unions like the CTU have undertaken to organize in the interest of the working class. We’ll discuss how to use this framework to organize around issues like the school-to-prison pipeline that impact our workplaces and communities alike.
