Program Full-Description

As wealth inequality increases sharply during a pandemic, poverty and policing become ever more severe, and fascism on the rise, many organizers recognize the need to return to foundational understandings of capitalism, exploitation, and power to better understand and respond to the current moment. In this clinic, organizers will have the chance to work through baseline Marxist concepts in community with other organizers and discuss their application in today’s conditions.

Together we will explore examples of movements and revolutions that have applied, adjusted, and expanded Marxism in their time and place and end the clinic with space to brainstorm how to apply Marxism to our practices and strategize where we might go from here.

There will be time for organizers to connect, collaborate, brainstorm, and put their understanding of Marxist theory to work in their organizing spaces. Participants will have the chance to think through problems in their current organizing spaces with a Marxist lens and support each other through applying Marxist principles to their work.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
