Sunday, November 11
8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
UW Seattle
Savery Hall


Amid the resistance to Trump’s agenda, a socialist movement is growing for the first time in half a century. Over the last two years, we have come face to face with every question that the system poses for those who want a better world: How do we confront the growing far right? How do we end sexual violence? How do we organize against all forms of racism and oppression? How do strikes win and how do they spread? How do we organize to push aside the existing world order so that we can build a society based on human need instead of one propped up by exploitation and oppression?

We think that a full transformation of the brutal capitalist system we live in can only come from a revolution from below that involves the vast majority of people. The strikes, protests and courage on display this last year have confirmed the role that ordinary people can and will play in charting a way forward. Join socialists and activists from across the Pacific Northwest to dig into Marxist theory, history and practice that can help us make sense of the questions we face and develop strategies for changing the world.
