Reading Group: No Shortcuts by Jane McAlevey, Pt. 1

May 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

To win the future we want, we need to organize. It’s time to build our power.

At this Houston DSA Reading Group, we will begin reading Jane McAlevey’s “No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age.” We will aim to cover the first two chapters this Monday, and will tackle the rest of the book in upcoming sessions.

If you are interested in obtaining an electronic copy of the book (for non-distributional purposes only, of course), please email us at info@houstondsa.org and we will provide. You can also purchase a hard copy from the publisher or your preferred online retailer.

More information about the book is here:

If you are interested in further discussion on No Shortcuts beyond our local Houston DSA Reading Group, you may be interested to know that DSA National will be hosting a series of webinars with the author starting June 1. If you register for this webinar, you will receive a coupon for 25% off the purchase of the book. You can register here:

The Houston DSA Reading Group is open to members and non-members alike and aims to be accessible to all attendees regardless of background knowledge or expertise. We meet the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month.

These discussions are brought to you by the Houston DSA Political Education Working Group. We also use these meetings to brainstorm and plan other activities for political outreach for the chapter. If you have any ideas, you are welcome to bring them!

We hope to see you there!
