About Us

The Alexander Berkman Social Club is a group of anarchists who want to talk about what anarchism is, how anarchists see things and what anarchy could look like. Named after the editor of San Francisco’s mighty The Blast, we hope to have continual monthly meetings that are open to all. If you come you’ll get a membership card, the chance to win thousands of dollars (alright – the odd book or two) and hopefully something to think about and act on. You failed the audition for “So You Think You Can Dance,” and you just don’t seem with it. Don’t worry. The ABSC will have you. See you there!

Meeting on Thursday!

We're meeting this Thursday, July 31 at 7pm sharp! (doors will open at 6:45)
Our topic this month is Anarchism and Sexuality and we've got a jam packed lineup for you.

First up, the musical stylings by the beautiful and talented Jesse Quatro.

Our featured speakers will be Joey Cain and Terence Kissack.

Joey is a co-founder of the Edward Carpenter Forum and a member of Bound Together Bookstore and will be speaking on Edward Carpenter.

Terence Kissack is the author of the Free Comrades: Anarchism and Sexuality in the United States, 1895-1917, recently published by AK Press. Terence will be speaking on the topic of his book, but with a focus on your friend and mine, Mr. Berkman.

As always our meeting will include refreshments, (this time including snacks and maybe something more exciting to drink than coffee) time for socializing, raffles and more. All for the low low price of $5!

Hope to see you all there!
