When: Tuesday, April 13, 6:30-8:30

Where: 1433 Webster Street, Oakland

Whether you are working for affordable housing, public transit, food access, healthcare for all, clean energy, economic alternatives to capitalism, labor rights, peace, immigration rights, media justice, sustainable cities, or wnat to learn more about these issues, there’s a place for your voice and energy.

The US Social Forum (USSF) is a movement building process. It is not a conference but it is a space to come up with the peoples’ solutions to the economic and ecological crisis. The USSF is the next most important step in our struggle to build a powerful multi-racial, multi-sectoral, inter-generational, diverse, inclusive, internationalist movement that transforms this country and changes history.

We must declare what we want our world to look like and we must start planning the path to get there. The USSF provides spaces to learn from each other’s experiences and struggles, share our analysis of the problems our communities face, build relationships, and align with our international brothers and sisters to strategize how to reclaim our world.
