[Chicago] REVITALIZING REVOLUTIONARY THEORY AND PRACTICE

The emergence of new social struggles in the U.S. and elsewhere in response to the deepening crises of existing society raises new possibilities—as well as new challenges—for those seeing to develop a viable alternative to capitalism. Join us for a discussion in which the panelists will probe this issue from a variety of critical perspectives.
