May General Membership Meeting – We Can’t Go Back to “Normal”: Rebuilding Society with a Green New Deal
May 5, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=15166
Join Seattle DSA for our May General Membership Meeting! We will discuss how to build towards a Green New Deal in the face of the dual crises of COVID-19 and capitalism.
Politicians and corporations push to re-open businesses and lift shelter-in-place orders, claiming that we can “get back to normal.” Yet we know that we cannot go back, that “normal” is a deadly and exploitative capitalist system. So what can we fight for to preserve and expand our wins during this time, like fare-free transit and renter and worker protections? What is a socialist vision of how to transform society out of this crisis toward a sustainable and just future?
We’ll hear from climate change activists and organizers about our current political moment, the contradictions of capitalism that it reveals, and what it will take to transform society in this moment, from policy change to public ownership of major corporations. We’ll share opportunities to get involved in the fight for COVID-19 relief, Green New Homes, and a Green New Deal to rebuild society.
The meeting will take place via Zoom. If you are not yet a DSA member, please register HERE to access the link!
