"The People's State of the Union" - A Community Forum

One year after Obama took office . . .

Trillion Dollar Bailouts for Wall Street. Rising Unemployment. Escalation of Wars. Budget Cuts for Education and Public Services. LGBT Discrimination. Health Care Crisis. Continued Foreclosures & Evictions.

Join the International Socialist Organization for a community forum to assess the past year of the Obama administration and the effects of its policies on our lives as well as the state of our social movements. Speaking at the Forum:

Steve Meacham-Activist with City Life/Vida Urbana, a neighborhood housing rights organization leading the fight against foreclosures and evictions.

Julie Keefe-Activist at UMass Boston speaking on the multi-million dollar budget cuts and fee hikes at the city’s only public university.

Kate Leslie-Activist with Join The Impact, on the state of the national movement fighting for equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in all matters governed by civil law in all fifty states.

PLUS-a local antiwar activist on the state of U.S imperialism under the Obama administration.
