THE SOCIALIST PARTY strives to establish a radical democracy that places people's lives under their own control - a non-racist, classless, feminist socialist society... where working people own and control
the means of production and distribution through democratically-controlled public agencies; and where the production of society is used for
the benefit of all humanity, not for the private profit of a few. We believe socialism and democracy are one and indivisible.

Racism and Privilege Teach In
Occupy Memphis is still going strong! Caucuses meet periodically (often weekly) and are generally a place where marginalized groups of people can have their voices heard while eliciting direct action not only within Occupy, but throughout Memphis. The Diversity Caucus has organized a teach in on Privilege and Racism scheduled for Tuesday, November 29 7:00 P.M. at the AFCME Local 1733 building at 485 Beale St. Speakers will discuss white privilege, and racism in its structural, institutional, and interpersonal dimensions. They will also address the impact of the history of privilege and racism on our modern-day interactions and society. Following the speakers and a q-and-a, a panel will share their personal experiences of racism. Other Occupy Memphis caucuses include the African-American Caucus, Women's Caucus, Anti-Capitalist Caucus, Homelessness Caucus, and Atheist/Agnostic Caucus.
