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?

Panelists:

  • 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.
