We have a great list of Progressive speakers and guests, for example, David Campos, current Chair of the Democratic County Central Committee, Shanell Williams, City College Trustee, Jane Kim, District 6 Supervisor and many surprise guests.

Hope to see you there!

When he introduced the ideas of democratic socialism to last year’s presidential election, the Bernie Sanders campaign didn’t just drag American politics into the twenty-first century. We might say that it brought them into the twentieth century, since every other major industrialized nation has had a substantial socialist movement for quite some time.
Socialism is a word that can mean many different things to many different people. Clearly it is broad, long-range goal extending far beyond any single election. At the same time, electoral activity is central to most views of democratic socialism.
How are we to think about our 2018 and 2020 goals – and our 2050 dreams?
Claire Lau, Chair, San Francisco Berniecrats.
