Spanish for Socialists

After a brief pause, we're returning to the Spanish for Socialists class! The next class is on Sunday, November 19th from 5-7PM. Location TBD.

The subject of this class is broken windows policing and the Close Rikers campaign. We'll focus on language around policing and criminal justice, discuss broken windows policing in NYC and the activism around the Close Rikers campaign, as well as practice Spanish canvassing conversations for the campaign.

As always, we plan to conduct the class primarily in Spanish, but want to make it accessible to people with all language levels!
