Working People


Sep 1, 2019

For this special Labor Day installment of our ORGANIZE! series, we talk to Z, one of the cofounders of the Black Socialists of America. We trace BSA's evolution from a social and educational network to an organization focused on "Mobilizing poor and working class Black American people for revolutionary change in both the public and private sectors." We also talk about their unveiling of the Dual-Power Map and about how BSA is working in coalition with Cooperation Jackson and Symbiosis to build dual power and "develop a national network of, and infrastructure for, Worker Self-Directed Enterprises (WSDE cooperatives) and communes here in America that are federated and linked to community land trust initiatives, public (cooperative) banking institutions, mutual aid networks, and more."
