Socialist Night School is an open course that provides a chance to develop our politics together, regardless of background knowledge or whether you’ve attended a class before. New members and lifelong socialists, all are welcome! To sign up for our mailing list or to find out more, e-mail us at SeaNightSchool [at] gmail . com

–> RSVP here! <–

Our theme for this session is “Socialism and the Family“. We’ll be discussing the ways in which capitalism shapes family life (spoiler: it’s not good, folks!) and what an alternative might look like. We’ll also be discussing the ways in which the pandemic has further exposed the failures of capitalism to address the basic needs of working class families. RSVP for Zoom info!
