May’s theme will be social media under capitalism. Realizing that social media platforms is both a powerful tool for connecting economic justice organizers and a powerful tool for companies to profit off of our data through psychological manipulation, the goal for this month is untangle when being online is and isn’t aiding our liberation. There are no easy answers! Come prepared to ask yourself some uncomfortable questions about your current online habits, while receiving support in a group setting. Don’t forget to bring something to write on/with!

(DSA meditation and mindful sharing is a space for deconstructing the psychologically internalized aspects of capitalism through the help of the collective. We use group meditation, contemplative journaling, and mindful sharing of our own personal experiences to mentally and emotionally unpack how systems of domination affect our organizing work and and our ability to form healthy politically left/progressive communities).
