We are excited for the return of the Socialism Conference this September on Labor Day weekend in Chicago! Join fellow EWOC members there for a weekend full of exciting panels and organizers from around the country.
EWOC will be hosting a panel about our organizing and the revival of the American labor movement, and will be joining a DSA panel on Rank and File power in the labor movement today! We’ll also be hosting a workplace organizing training on Saturday at 5:00pm during the meet up sessions for conference attendees. And we’ll have literature and merchandise at the DSA table. If you’d like to volunteer that weekend with us please sign up HERE for a tabling shift or join us at the training.
If you haven’t heard of it before, the Socialism Conference is a four day conference featuring dozens of panels, lectures, and workshops addressing left history, theory, and strategy. The conference will facilitate exchanges between existing activists and organizations, while also welcoming new layers of organizers as part of rebuilding our radical traditions and movements. A new generation of socialists, abolitionists, unionists, and activists will be there to build collaboration and discuss vision and strategy.
Other exciting panels about the labor movement will include: When We Fight: The Teachers’ Strike Wave in Retrospect with Dan Denvir and Jesse Sharkey; Class Struggle Unionism with Joe Burns; and Fight Like Hell: Labor’s Past, Present, and Future with Kim Kelly.
Other DSA panels will include: The Crisis in American Politics: Socialists and Liberal Democracy; Socialists in Defense of Abortion Rights; A Movement for Our Class: Socialists and Multiracial Organizing Today; Building the Party: An Inside-Outside Strategy for Organizing Beyond Elections; Solidarity with Brazil and Latin America’s Pink Tide; The Longer Road to a Green New Deal; and more!
