Midwest Marxism Conference

FBGraphic 01

 

Grace United Methodist Church

3325 W. Wrightwood Ave.  • Logan Square

 

Activists nationwide are uniting to demand justice—from Gaza to Ferguson. We feel the urgent need to stand against the power of the wealthy elite who defend their unequal system with racist and militarized police forces, impose their interests internationally through airstrikes and armed support for dictatorships, and divide the people they rule over through institutionalized systems of sexism, homophobia, nationalism, transphobia, and racism. To build a credible challenge, we need to read about, debate about, and learn from the struggles of the past and the political ideas formed by those who’ve fought before us.

Join the International Socialist Organization for a day-long conference exploring our radical history and the politics that inform how we organize today to win a better future.
