Murray Bookchin, who founded social ecology, a theory that strongly influenced early Green Socialist thought, strongly advocated the discussion and study group as the first step of any revolutionary movement. A group of individuals meets to expand their knowledge of radical thought and form a radical intellectual community; through the give and take of discussion, can eventually form ideas for next steps in organizing and political activity. According to Bookchin, study groups help create solidarity and a shared language — with a shared coherent vision — for building a mass, organizing, political movement!

This livestream workshop will give an overview of how to run a reading/discussion group, from how to do outreach and promotion to choosing a reading to running the meeting.

It is part of a series of workshops scheduled to help local organizers start their own local reading/discussion group.

Streaming on FacebookYouTubeTwitter, and Twitch.
