Socialism 2014 - Save the Date!

Socialism 2014

Four days of politics, debate and entertainment
June 26 through June 29
Crowne Plaza Hotel O’Hare | Chicago

Teacher, parent and student activists discussing the way forward for the struggle for education justice. Environmental activists strategizing about next steps for the movement. Independent journalist Glenn Greenwald speaking out on the crimes of the national security state. Socialists from Greece, Egypt and Britain describing the challenges ahead for the revolutionary left. LGBT activists highlighting the struggle for transgender rights. Idle No More activists linking historic First Nation and Native American struggles with those today. Electronic Intifada’s Ali Abunimah on the Palestinian struggle. Discussions about the importance of Marxist theory today.

These are a few of the many highlights from Socialism 2013. This annual summer conference brings out hundred of socialists and other activists from around the country to take part in important discussions about Marxism, working-class history, and the debates and strategies for organizing today—from the fight against the racist criminal justice system to the struggle of low-wage workers.

In 2014, we’re planning something different--we’re adding another day,which means more meetings and more opportunities to take part in discussions and hear important voices from the struggle.

So please save the dates and plan to join us next summer at Socialism 2014:
Thursday June 26 (registration will begin at 11 a.m. for a full day of sessions) through Sunday June 29
