Socialist Salon is DSA's monthly forum to discuss the politics, economics, theory, and practice of democratic socialism.
Come to Socialist Salon and share your insights!
Socialist Salon Monthly Discussion Forum is generally held on the ThirdThursday of the month.
The topic for this month will be student loan debt.
Student loan debt in the United States now exceeds $1 trillion. Higher education is increasingly treated as an individual commodity, rather than a public good or an investment in our collective future.
We will be discussing what this means for students and for society as a whole and what we can do to make student loan repayment simple and fair.
