Talking About Socialism

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.

Join us for our latest organizing training for democratic socialist activists: DSA’s (Virtual) Little Red Schoolhouse.

This training is at 9:00pm Eastern, 8:00pm Central, 7:00pm Mountain, 6:00pm Pacific, 5:00pm Alaska, and 3:00pm Hawaii Time. A first session will begin two hours earlier. Please RSVP for the session that fits your schedule.


Steve Max, DSA Vice Chair and one of the founders of the legendary community organizing school, The Midwest Academy

  • Create your own elevator pitch about democratic socialism and DSA.
