Is the only choice to call for revolution or nothing? Marx consistently supported substantive reforms such as universal suffrage and the, abolition of slavery. In today’s context, what are issues and demands for reforms that would make a huge difference in the lives of millions, open up spaces to talk about transformative in ways that can reach a broad(er) audience, and, create alternative institutions that could significantly increase working class power – even if, on their own, these reforms don’t get us “beyond capitalism”?  This workshop will explore 5 such issues/demands:
• Worker-Owned Cooperative Businesses
• Public Banks
• Cut The Work Day/Week: Arguments for a 4-hour/4-day work day/week
• A Guaranteed Income For All
• A “Green New Deal”
