Labor Day Potluck; hosted by the Socialist Party of Central Alabama
On Labor Day 2017, September 4, the Socialist Party of Central Alabama held a Labor Day Potluck at the EAT South Farm in downtown Montgomery, Alabama. The event featured a wide array of food items, contributed by party members and unaffiliated attendees alike, and featured the musical stylings of local favorites Justin Turberville, Buddy Wiltbank, The Last Thing You Remember (SPUSA comrade Nelson Jancanterino) and The Powell Brothers (including SPUSA comrade Adam Powell). In addition to live music and a potluck dinner, SPCA raffled off a variety of books – titles by Lenin, Mao and Kropotkin donated by Alabama SPUSA comrade Rob Dunn; the “A,B,C's of Socialism” donated by SPUSA comrade Shannon Hammock – board games and other items. From this raffle, the local was able to raise more than $120 to assist in its local efforts. Also in attendance were comrades from the Socialist Party of Eastern Alabama and members of the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) and the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) from Birmingham. An immense amount of information was dispersed to the more than 50 people who attended and the party gained at least four new members who attended.
