Santa Barbara Friends Meeting House


Do you have questions about socialism, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), or left-of-center politics? Want to meet more of your fellow chapter and community members? Join the Santa Barbara Democratic Socialists of America for this low key event — bring a snack, dessert or drink to share, if you can. This event will be part socializing, part group discussion. It’s a great opportunity for those relatively new to socialist ideas to share your own path in politics, or pose those burning questions like: “Doesn’t socialism lead to authoritarianism?” or “Will socialists take my Kenny Loggins records?” We recommend reading a little bit on your own before attending — these are three excellent resources to consider:

Jared Abbott, “Radicals for Our Time” (2017)

Democratic Socialists of America, “Resistance Rising” (2016; PDF)

Bhaskar Sunkara, ed. “ABCs of Socialism‘ (Jacobin, 2016; PDF)
