Why You Should Be a Socialist:
What is Socialism and How do we get there?
Wed 10/6 at 7pm
UW Savery Hall Room 139 

We live in a world of poverty, war and environmental devastation. A world where living standards for working people plummet while an elite few enjoy lives of unbelievable wealth and power. An alternative to capitalism is desperately needed. The word "socialism" has returned to the mainstream of American political debate. But there are widespread misconceptions about what socialism is—and what it isn't. Socialism is really about the struggle to oppose discrimination in all its forms and to put the needs of working people before corporate profits. Come discuss the idea of socialism—and socialist strategies for changing the world.

Next week:
10/13 - Intro to the ISO Organizing Meeting
