Have you heard the buzz about the US Social Forum but have questions about what it’s all about? Want to know how to register, how to get involved, what will be happening in Detroit June 22-26? For the month of March, the US Social Forum will be hosting informational call-in sessions every Tuesday (in English) and Thursday (Espanol).

The one-hour phone sessions are a great opportunity for anyone to ask questions and hear about the goals and history of the Social Forum, details about what will be happening in Detroit this summer, logistics on how to get involved, and how to use the Forum as an opportunity for local and regional movement-building.

Registration is open. Workshop and Cultural submissions can be made until March 20th. For more information, check the website at www.ussf2010.org.

The US Social Forum is bringing together grassroots groups to develop vision, collaborations, and strategies needed to construct a more peaceful and just world.  The Forum builds off the decade old process of the World Social Forum.  Bringing together the social justice work of low-income communities, people of color, young people, and LGBTQI communities, the forum is built by the grassroots for the grassroots to ensure that those affected by issues are at the center of movement responses and actions. It is a movement-building process that opens space for convergence, strategy exchange, and expanding our visions under the banner Another World is Possible. Another US is Necessary. A New Detroit is Underway.
