Talking About Socialism

This workshop is full; no more RSVPs. But the session two hours later is still open. Feel free to switch to the later one, if you already signed up for the early one.

Practice talking about socialism in plain language. Create your own short rap. Prepare for those conversations about socialism that happen when you table for Bernie Sanders.
