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!

Our Second Event

Thanks to everyone who came to our second event. The turnout has been amazing and we hope to continue our meetings into 2009.

Jessica Moran gave a brief introduction to anarchism and free love in the U.S. during the late 19th century, Terence Kissack spoke about his book Free Comrades: Anarchism and Sexuality in the United States 1895-1917, and Joey Cain gave a thrilling presentation on Edward Carpenter.

Our next meeting will be August 28, 2008, same place, same time, further details to follow.
