Book Club: 18th Brumaire
February 18, 2019 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Kéan Coffee, 13681 Newport Ave #14, Tustin, CA 92780, USA
Join us for a discussion of Marx's classic text, The 18th Brumaire of Louis Napoleon. Although it examines the historical conditions under which Napoleon III took power over two centuries ago, it remains relevant to contemporary analysis of topics ranging from fascism and counter-revolution, the nature of the bourgeois state, and the role of individuals in making history.
Maintaining Mental Wellness as an Activist
February 24, 2019 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Leatherby Libraries at Chapman University 1 University Dr, Orange, California 92866
It is impossible for a person to be outraged continuously for long periods of time, but outrage is the natural response to ongoing injustices and atrocities. The results can be considered a form of compassion fatigue, a literal depletion of the human capacity for a normal response.
How do we avoid burnout and apathy? How do we stay engaged without wearing ourselves out? We will discuss self-care as a form of activism.
Meet with us in the Orange County DSA on Sunday, February 24th, to discuss this important issue. We will be holding a meeting at Leatherby Libraries at Chapman University, in a basement conference room (room TBA). Street parking is available near the campus.
Remember that we're running a marathon, not a sprint.
