Socialism is on the march. How can a new generation turn this moment, radically open and turbulent, into a permanent feature of the North American social landscape?
On April 13–14, 2019, the Socialism in Our Time conference will explore this question. It will provide an emerging movement the space to ask new questions, identify key challenges, develop our understanding of capitalism, and consider struggles to build an alternative.
Over two days in New York City, Socialism in Our Time will bring together hundreds of scholars, seasoned activists, labor organizers, union members, and journalists, as well as many who are new to or curious about socialism. Both new and veteran leftists will connect, discuss, and debate at dozens of panels and workshops.
