Socialists and the Uprising Against Racism – Sunday, July 5, 4-6 PM (EDT)
Sunday, July 5, 2020 at 4 PM – 6 PM EDT
The mass protests in response to the police murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis constitute the biggest popular uprising in the US since the 1960s. What relationship have socialist organizations, including the Democratic Socialists of America, had to this movement? Join us for an online discussion of the opportunities and challenges that exist to making socialist politics relevant to the new rebellion against racism.
