This year is the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. What was planned as a commemorative march in D.C. has transformed into a full blown nationwide mobilization -- bolstered by the protests in the wake of the Zimmerman verdict. How can we organize across the city, alongside civil rights, feminist, labor, and environmental activists, to bring people down for the march? As socialists, what is our role in helping to mobilize people, and how do we navigate working with liberal and non-revolutionary groups?

Finally, come to our meeting to discuss plans for a day school on Marxism-Feminism -- specifically Black Feminism & Social Reproduction Theory. If we hope to be solid activists in the struggles of today, we need to educate ourselves on important theory.
