Hearing about democratic socialism can raise more questions than answers, like "What does it mean?" and "How's it different from communism and social democracy?" Nassau County Democratic Socialists of America Political Education Committee is hosting a teach-in where we'll try to answer your questions and explain the history and ideology of democratic socialism. We'll also deconstruct myths about socialism and efforts to replace capitalism, as well as reaffirm our connection to the radical struggle for democracy.

Anyone interested in learning more about democratic socialism and DSA are encouraged to attend, new and non-members included. Food and beverages will be provided.
