Philly DSA is planning a series of 3 trainings called "Political Revolution," we're we'll be giving Bernie organizers a crash course in the skills they'll need to pull people into the Bernie campaign leading up to the election.
As the rise in popularity of Bernie Sanders over the last six months has confirmed, American voters — including many first-time voters — are excited about the possibility of a Sanders presidency. Despite the stigma once attached to his identification with Democratic Socialism, he continues to surge in the polls, raise record-breaking amounts of grassroots donations and draw tens of thousands to volunteer and attend events. Sanders is calling, explicitly, for a “political revolution.” But what does that mean? Come to our Philadelphia training as we bring activists together to discuss the nature and limits of the U.S. political system, the power of dangerous ideas and how we can build a long lasting political movement to fight for radical change.
