NPEC’s New Curriculum Website
DSA’s National Political Education Committee (NPEC) is happy to announce our new curriculum website!
Featuring lesson plans for running a Socialist Night School and three foundational modules (‘What is Capitalism?’, ‘What is Socialism?’, and ‘Why the Working Class?’), this is the first iteration of a continuously expanding resource for political educators developed and published by NPEC. Our committee plans on adding more modules as well as Spanish translations, so be sure to check out the website throughout 2023 for new content!
If you’re unsure how to best use our new website to get a Socialist Night School set up in your chapter, join our mentorship program by filling out this form.

Class: The NPEC Podcast
Class is the official podcast of the National Political Education Committee of the Democratic Socialists of America. We believe working people should run both the economy and society democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few. Class is a podcast where we ask socialists about why they are socialists, what socialism looks like, and how we, as the working class, can become the ruling class.
