The Metro DC DSA Night School is a series of twice-monthly sessions that explore basic ideas, concepts and historical events related to socialism. Some sessions will be more of a seminar style, others will be more discussion based. Topics in the first few sessions will include Introduction to Socialism, Introduction to Marxism, Social Reproduction, Political Repression and the US Left, Ecosocialism, and Police / Prison Abolition.
The series is open to all, but are geared towards people that are newer to socialism. Familiarity with socialist theory is not assumed. While later sessions will build off of earlier ones, attending each session is not required.
