DC SDS Summer School Reccommends you audit the Black August Planning Organization events!

As you can see on your left, the Upcoming Events calendar for DC SDS now includes events from the Black August Planning Organization.

DC SDS summer school ran out of summer before we were able to hold classes on Black Liberation struggle!

Thankfully, for years an organization has been organizing popular education events about this topic, often bringing exciting speakers and teaching us all a lot about the struggle for the liberation of black people in the United States, about the prison-industrial concepts, and reminding us that we have comrades behind bars that we cannot in good conscience forget.

Take some time to check out these events as they come up in August. We know you won't be disappointed...
