Get read-y for the Marxism conferences
In late October and November, the International Socialist Organization will host regional Marxism Conferences around the country around the theme of "Socialism or Barbarism: The Urgency for Fighting for a New World"--and you're invited. These meetings will take up the socialist history and analysis to help build the opposition to the Trump administration's multisided attack on us all. To help you get ready for these conferences, Socialist Worker has put together a list of readings for the sessions you'll attend.
If you haven't already, visit the Marxism Conferences website to find a meeting near you!
