6501 Telegraph Ave
Join editor Quincy Saul and Russel Maroon Shoatz's daughter Theresa Shoatz for a talk on Ecosocialism.
A report and presentation about the work of Ecosocialist Horizons, featuring Quincy Saul and Theresa Shoatz.
Ecosocialist Horizons is an organization founded in 2011, which has been very active over the past year in organizing and educating around ecosocialist principles and ideas. This report on ecosocialist praxis will illustrate what this group has been doing, and describe the theoretical and strategic foundations for its activities. Quincy Saul, co-founder of Ecosocialist Horizons and senior editor of the ecosocialist journal Capitalism Nature Socialism, will explain the practical work and political vision of this organization, framed as an invitation to the people of Oakland and the Bay Area to join this movement. Theresa Shoatz, associate of Ecosocialist Horizons and co- chair of the International Campaign to Free Russell Maroon Shoatz, will provide a perspective of ecosocialism as seen from black urban communities suffering from the prison industrial complex, the capitalist food system, and the possibilities of revolutionary community organizing.
After a period of inactivity, we want to renew our efforts to build an ecosocialist current here in the Bay Area. NOTE: This will be in the upstairs back room.
