11/17 Union Theological Seminary Webinar: American Democratic Socialism by Dr. Gary Dorrien

Join Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday, November 17 at 6:00 pm EST for a Union at Home webinar featuring Dr. Gary Dorrien ’78, discussing his new book, American Democratic Socialism: History, Politics, Religion, and Theory. Dr. Dorrien will be in conversation with President Serene Jones and Dr. Cornel West. Registration is required to receive the Zoom webinar details.

Democratic socialism is ascending in the United States as a consequence of a widespread recognition that global capitalism works only for a minority and is harming the planet’s ecology. Dr. Dorrien’s book offers a history of American democratic socialism from its beginning to the present day. It interprets the efforts of American socialists to address and transform multiple intersecting realities of injustice and harm. Join us as we explore secular and religious socialisms, detailing both their intellectual and their organizational histories.
