Socialist Night School: School to Prison Pipeline and Organizing for the Common Good
November 7, 2019 @ 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.
Readings for the session are:
Tithi Bhattacharya, Excerpt from “How Not To Skip Class: Social Reproduction of Labor and the Global Working Class”
Robert Bartlett, “Creating a New Model of a Social Movement Union”
Sam Gindin “Beyond Social Movement Unionism”
Joseph A. McCartin, Marilyn Sneiderman, Stephen Lerner, and Maurice BP-Weeks, “Before the Chalk Dust Settles: Building on the 2018 Teachers’ Mobilization”
