"What's next for the movement? How do we make a political revolution in this country?" These and many other questions are likely to become even more pressing this July.

In recognition of the historic opportunity afforded by this political moment, a number of socialist organizations are planning a series of "Socialist Convergence" assemblies: meetings, panels, and workshops to take place concurrently to the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Philadelphia, from July 25th to July 28th.

The convergence will include panel discussions on questions of strategy and what's next for the movement, workshops on the nuts-and-bolts of how to build socialist organization in your hometown, and space for collective deliberation on how / if to relate to each other's work after July.

Panel discussions will be held evenings at Friends Center (1501 Cherry Street) throughout the week of the DNC (July 25th through July 28th).

PLEASE NOTE: The venue is NOT air conditioned. Please dress appropriately and be prepared for very hot weather.

How-to-organize workshops will be scheduled for the mornings of the DNC at FDR Park.

Stay tuned for more details on the event program...
