Join us for food and drinks this Sunday for our first ever Socialist Feminist Happy Hour! We highly encourage you to bring a non-DSA friend along! This event is a great way to show that our organization isn’t solely “Bernie bros”. See below for details:
Date: Sunday, 2/11
Location: Bierhaus, 383 Castro St, Mountain View, CA 94041
Comrades under 21 are able to attend.
This happy hour is a space for female, femme, trans, and non-binary comrades only. We ask that only these groups attend to help us create a safe space (this policy may change in future events).
It is important that as we work to break down socioeconomic hierarchies through our organizing, that we also work on breaking down patriarchal systems. Within our community, we need to build solidarity between individuals “who have lived gendered oppression in a significant way” in spaces centered around them. These recurring happy hour events can serve as a low-key space to talk politics, socialize, or connect new friends to DSA, because the personal is political and can include more than shop-talk. Your socialism must include feminism and your feminism must include socialism.
“Solidarity is what we want. We do not want to find fault with each other, but to solidify our forces and say to each other: We must be together; our masters are joined together and we must do the same thing.” -Mother Jones
