AREA/CPW Capitalism Reading Group

In AREA #8 “Everybody’s Got Money Issues” the group Chicago Political Workshop developed a critical response to the contents of AREA #8

They are now inviting friends of AREA to join them in a reading group
inspired by that issue of AREA. Please come to this first meeting to
get involved and contact them to get the first readings. The theme of
the first meeting is about grounding ourselves in the history and
context of Chicago.
