The Future of the Left webcast

How can we build a stronger democratic socialist movement in the 21st century? Can we find a form of left unity, and if so, around what principles? How can we reach out to newly politicized people and build a democratic and majoritarian movement capable of taking down the capitalist system?

Watch the WEBCAST of this June 5th dialog! This will not be your typical socialist event - just brief remarks and then a reception for sharing ideas for folks in NYC.
