BSA Meets Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Posted by BSA Staff on 25th Jul 2018

On July 25th, 2018, Z and Sean of Black Socialists of America met with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at her office in Queens, New York City.

Alex and her campaign staff were incredibly eager to learn more about BSA's current focuses and strategies as an organization, and the ways in which we can build effective, cross-sector coalitions within the United States to challenge capitalist relations.

During this meeting, the three discussed the differences between Social Democracy and Democratic Socialism, the world of electoral politics, Alexandria's personal campaign strategy, the roles and limitations of Socialist politicians in our collective struggle for liberation, and the many internal issues plaguing the Leftist community today.
