LIFE AFTER BUSH: Youth Activism & the Fight for Our Future
12 Jan 2004
CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT


************************************************
LIFE AFTER BUSH: Youth Activism & the Fight for Our Future

February 20-22 New York City
************************************************


Description:
A weekend long conference for young activists dedicated to social and
economic justice. Workshops and plenary presentations will address topics
ranging from U.S. foreign policy, workers rights, anti-racism, the feminist
movement, confronting right-wing ideology, globalization and America's
low-wage economy, LGBTQ activism, grassroots organizing, democratic
socialist politics and more. Participants will explore what's at stake in
this critical election year as well as strategize how students and youth can
best affect change in 2004 and beyond. The conference will highlight
upcoming mobilizations and campaign initiatives that anyone can plug into
such as the April 25th March for Women's Lives, and the Books Not Bombs
national day of action. "Life After Bush" will be an excellent opportunity
to debate, network and have fun with other young people from across the
country.
