The Socialist Education Project
Socialist education is important for both strengthening the movement and building greater connection and cooperation, and informing effective action.
The Socialist Education Project of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism will sponsor online discussion and resources and in-person programs. It will produce literature, visual aids and cultural products of value to help create a socialism that both draws upon its history and is relevant to building a twenty-first century socialism.
Everyone is invited to participate!
Why a Marxist School?
Karl Marx’s ideas are a common touchstone for many people working for change. His historical materialism, his many contributions to political economy and class analysis, all continue to serve his core values–the self-emancipation of the working class and a vision of a classless society. There are naturally many trends in Marxism that have developed over the years, and new ones are on the rise today. All of them and others who want to see this project succeed are welcome here.

CCDS webinar: Socialists and the 2018 elections
Max Elbaum, author and contributor to Organizing Upgrade website, looks at questions such as, how do we convert the energy we see in the streets to electoral power? How do we fight racism and defend immigrants while setting a strong class pole? Max is a historian, author and social activist. His book on the “new communist movement” of the 1970s and 80s, Revolution in the Air: Sixties Radicals turn to Lenin, Mao and Che, is highly-regarded and now a standard Left history of the period. He has worked on War Times/Tiempo de Guerras, a publication to fight the Bush administration response to the terrorist attacks of 9/11
