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!



The Online University of the Left

A drawing of young Karl Marx

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.

The Left and the 2018 Elections: high stakes for the country

CCDS Socialist Education Project Webinar: May 21, 9pm edt

Many on the Left will actively engage the 2018 elections.  The stakes are high: it is imperative to defeat right-wing Republications to stop the extremist attacks on working people.  And, as public opinion sours on Trump, there are many opportunities to elect progressives both nationally and locally, and pass state ballot initiatives.  The new progressive formations that emerged to resist the far-right Republican government show growing potential.  How do democratic socialists become involved?
Carl Davidson, former CCDS co-chair, will open by framing the national political forces in the US.  Donna Dewitt, retired president of the South Carolina AFL-CIO, will follow with a labor perspective.  CCDS activist Dan Margolis will report on the local situation in Worcester Mass. including Our Revolution.  Other commentators will follow from around the country, with open discussion.
