Description

Part of the Winning San Francisco panel series!What would it mean to win back San Francisco for the people? What is our collective vision for a socialist San Francisco, and how can we get there? This series of panels will explore issues and ideas for winning back San Francisco, street by street. Let’s build a new San Francisco for the many, not the few!Panel 1: Municipalism: Building A Socialist Movement to Create People PowerMunicipalism calls for a radical, participatory democracy to reclaim the commons in the name of economic equality, racial justice, queer liberation and feminist movement. It has been used successfully in cities across Spain, and more recently in Richmond, California and Jackson Mississippi. By building a neighborhood- and community-based network of people, engaged in democratic and direct action to transform local politics, we can take back our city.How will we create this model in San Francisco? Join the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the International Socialist Organization (ISO), Bay Resistance, and the SF Berniecrats to discuss the path to winning San Francisco.
