Socialist Education Project online webinar
 
Cosponsored by CCDS and Liberation Road
Monday, April 27, 9pm (eastern time) — Zoom link below
 
Featuring Marilyn Albert and Bill Fletcher Jr.

Systemic disaster or shock can open possibilities for social change not available in the US during normal times; the Covid-19 pandemic is such a crisis.   The right wing will seek to exploit the situation; what will the Left do?  The CCDS discussion will present an overview and examples, with two speakers:
Marilyn Albert — new opportunities for promoting single payer health care.
Bill Fletcher  — How the Right is using the crisis to advance its agenda.
The presentations will be followed by Q&A and discussion, including suggestions for new ways of online organizing..
