Double The Vote! The Socialist Fight For Democracy
October 6 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
DSA’s national platform includes a call for “a new political order through a second constitutional convention to write the founding documents of a new socialist democracy.” Here in San Francisco we’re fighting for Prop H to make elections more accessible and double turnout. Expanding the electorate and trying to shift the political order in even this small way has been called a “Democratic Socialist power grab” by our city’s mayor. How does the fight for democratic freedom, which Kautsky called “light and air for the proletariat,” fit into the history, present and future of the socialist movement?
- Eric Blanc, author of Revolutionary Social Democracy: Working-Class Politics Across the Russian Empire (1882-1917)
- Ben Grove, writer for Cosmonaut Magazine and member of Pinellas DSA
- Shae Watson, campaign manager for Prop H
This event will be accessible both in-person at the DSA SF office on 1916 McAllister and on Zoom.
