LDSA Socialist Syllabus
In August 2022, Louisville DSA approved a new political education syllabus. We will be discussing the texts in the syllabus in a series of meetings. Our third week's readings address the centrality of Class Struggle and we'll meet to discuss them on Monday, January 9th. Read what you can (a little or a lot!) and join us as we tackle the important questions for our work in our times.
