Northeast Socialist Conference
October 23-25
New York City
Columbia University

Every year hundreds of activists and socialists gather at the Northeast Socialist Conference to debate and discuss the struggles before us as well as an analysis of the urgent problems we face and a vision for a different future. With the free-market consensus in tatters and an open debate beginning about how best to organize our society, these discussions are more vital than ever. Plan now to join us the weekend of October 23-25.
Discussions will include reports and strategizing from today’s front-line battles. There will also be workshops on the history of radical labor and socialist movements; alternatives to capitalism; US imperialism and solidarity movements around the world.
