Mondays, Oct. 9 - 30

Study Group - Lessons of October

What will it take to make revolution in the 21st century successful?

A four-week study group will explore the short book Lessons of October by Leon Trotsky, based on his experience as a leader of the Russian Revolution. Trotsky asserts that creating fundamental changes requires a working-class party — and one that is not doctrinaire but is able to gauge and respond to swiftly changing conditions. His work is a valuable resource for activists who want to understand the dynamics of today’s “pop-up movements” and upsurges like the Arab Spring.

We will meet on Mondays from 7 to 9PM in October between 10/9 and 10/30.

A link to The Lessons of October online is available here. View the study guide here.

Police Accountability Campaign Meeting

How many more Black lives can we watch destroyed without justice? How many more guilty cops can we watch run free?

There is a grassroots campaign organizing for an Elected Civilian Review Board (ECRB) that would be empowered to discipline the NYPD and work with an Elected Special Prosecutor to bring justice to victims of police violence.

Join the NYC Campaign for an Elected Civilian Review Board! Come out to the next meeting to learn more and contribute your ideas.

We work together democratically and consciously build the participation and leadership of those most affected by police violence.

The Campaign needs street canvassers, social media help, writing, research help, and more!
