Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation for a screening of the Cuban documentary "A Year Without Sundays" and a discussion to follow. 

Here is a brief synopsis of the film: "In 1961, Cuba launched a nationwide, highly effective literacy campaign. Young people traveled from the cities to the rural areas, working with farmers during the day and teaching by lamplight at night.

Not only did the country rapidly reach an unprecedented 96 percent literacy rate, but also the young teachers were profoundly changed. They developed a new found respect for campesinos, and the traditional roles of women in society changed qualitatively.

The impact of the campaign on the teachers and the students is told through the photos and stories in this beautiful and inspirational film."

This event is free to attend. All are welcome and encouraged to join us in a discussion on the film and its content after the screening. The event will start on time as timing may be tight. 

The Party for Socialism and Liberation is a working class, revolutionary socalist party involved in many intersectional struggles, from police brutality and anti-gentrification, to immigrant rights and the LGBTQ struggle, nation wide. Our goal is to tackle bigotry, imperialism, anti-worker sentiments, and capitalism, here in the heart of global terror through education, organization, and action.
