The Democratic Party bills itself as the opposition to Trump, but over and over again it disappoints millions of people by siding with its wealthy donors over the interests of ordinary people.

The ISO believes that we need to build an alternative to both of the ruling-class parties that dominate politics in the U.S. Central to this project is building mass action and activism from below that can force concessions from those at the top.

Join us for a discussion about how we can build a movement to defeat Trump and Trumpism once and for all.
