Mark your calendars! The third US Social Forum (USSF) will be taking place in Philadelphia June 25th – 28th, 2015 at Temple University and along American Street. The USSF is a convergence driven by the understanding that people’s movements are what create social change.
Throughout the month of March, we have had groups of students come from Wesleyan University, Salisbury University, Swarthmore College, and Oberlin College to participate in our Alternative Spring Break Program. Throughout the program students were involved in organizing for the US Social Forum, advocating for the Voter’s Choice Act, working on our urban farm, participating in a march for voter’s rights, going on a reality tour, participating in educationals about opting out, homelessness, the drug war, and working on creating a policy to promote human rights for housing in Philadelphia.
MAY 1 – The 8th Annual May Day USA March, Rally and Celebration here in Philly at Clark Park!
FROM THE 8-HOUR DAY TO THE FIGHT FOR $15 – WHEN WE ORGANIZE WE CAN WIN!
Unbeknownst to many Americans, May Day was founded in the United States after the nationwide general strike for the eight-hour workday that started on May 1, 1886. The annual May Day USA Education Committee celebration – taking place at Clark Park in West Philly this year – highlights this hidden labor history as well as today’s struggles and past labor struggles honored by the Elmwood Park Labor Monument right here in our own City of Brotherly Love!
