22] – On Tues., April 14 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM, attend Socialist Night School: Social Reproduction, hosted by Metro D.C. Democratic Socialists of America.  What is the connection between gender and class? Why must socialists be feminists, and feminists be socialists? What does socialist feminist struggle look like? To answer these questions, look to social reproduction theory.

The question of social reproduction is the question of how workers are "reproduced" in order to keep capitalism surging along. Many humans—especially women—spend much of their time in the (often unrecognized) work of social reproduction. But this work is also a rich terrain for struggle! Come study the feminist Marxist concept of social reproduction with us, and think through how this concept can help us make larger demands for a better society. Pay special attention to the ways the covid-19 pandemic is pushing questions of social reproduction to the forefront of the global consciousness. Look at

26] – On Tues., April 14 from 8 to 9 PM, check out a Medicare For All Webinar, hosted by Our Revolution Anne Arundel County.  The American healthcare system is not working.  We pay more for healthcare than any other country yet millions of Americans still don’t have health insurance or are underinsured. While healthcare industry profits are higher than ever, medical bills are the number one cause of bankruptcy in the United States.

The Affordable Care Act, while a step in the right direction - has not controlled skyrocketing costs of healthcare. The solution is Medicare-for-all, a single-payer program that guarantees quality healthcare to all people as a right, not a privilege. Come learn about Medicare For All, and how the United States can join every other developed country in the world for a healthier citizenry! See
