About this Event
Announcing the Virtual Socialism 2020 conference!
As rebellions against racism roil cities big and small across the country, demands for police abolition proliferate, and systemic injustices are suddenly front and center in the mainstream, it is more critical than ever for radical activists to come together for important political growth and strategic conversations.
This July 4th, we invite you to reject America as we know it and convene with activists and organizers from around the country and around the world at the virtual Socialism 2020 conference.
Five powerful online discussions will explore how we can radically transform politics and society from the ground up.
Save the date and register to receive your links to join via email in advance of the conference.
Panels are in formation, and topics will include discussions of the state of crisis capitalism today, reparations for slavery and settler colonialism, the urgent fight for climate justice and a Green New Deal, and what these turbulent last few months mean for political organization and the capitalist state. This year our conference plenary will be themed “From Rebellion to Revolution.”

Robin D.G. Kelley, author, Hammer and Hoe
Grace Blakeley, author Stolen: How to Save the World from Financialisation
