IC Report on International Aspects of the First 100 Days
“In the transition between Trump and Biden presidencies—the consequences of a global pandemic, deepening economic crisis, the weakness of American liberalism, open displays of violence from the far right, and the absence of a strong, organized Left from the main stage of political life will be on striking display. Many will be looking for analysis and political vision beyond the insufficient Democratic and Republican establishment ‘business as usual’ responses.
DSA provides an alternative vision. Please join us to discuss what the first 100 days of a socialist government might look like, and to hear from leaders from various national DSA committees on their visions for a socialist future. This event will feature speakers from the Democratic Socialist Labor Committee, Afrosocialists and Socialists of Color Caucus, Ecosocialists WG, Socialist Feminist WG, National Political Education Committee, YDSA, and International Committee.”
