Forward Thrust: A Conversation with Seattle DSA’s Shaun Scott

September 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


“In 1968 and 1970, King County, Washington considered a package of ballot measures intended to advance a municipal vision for the Seattle metropolitan area. Though Forward Thrust wasn’t advanced by a socialist organization, the campaign served as an inspiration for DSA SF’s 2022 Ballot Measure campaign currently in development.

Former Seattle City Council candidate Shaun Scott has written and lectured extensively on Forward Thrust’s successes and shortcomings — we’ll host a lecture and Q&A from Shaun, and then split into breakout rooms to discuss the first two articles he wrote for the Urbanist:
