New York, NY
Their Crisis, Our Pain
The Democratic Socialist Response to the Great Recession
On the weekend of March 18th-20th, the Young Democratic Socialists will be holding our annual Winter outreach conference. Dr. Cornel West will be the featured speaker on Saturday the 19th, and we will also host Nation editor Liza Featherstone, Glenn Beck-attacked community activist Bertha Lewis, radical journalist Mark Engler, and Dan Cantor from the Working Families Party.
Panels on race, the environment, organizing, and other topics will allow participants to learn from and communicate with fellow activists on some of the most important domestic and international issues. The event is perfect for both newcomers to Democratic Socialism and YDS, as well as veteran activists.
