Mark your calendars! The third US Social Forum (USSF) will be taking place in Philadelphia June 25th – 28th, 2015. The USSF is a convergence driven by the understanding that people’s movements are what create social change.
The Philadelphia US Social Forum is anchored by organizations that are led by youth, poor people, and disabled people, and will be rooted in the themes of immigration, political democracy, disability, poverty, and youth rights. As a movement we will create spaces for strategy discussions, political education, People’s Movement Assemblies, local actions, art and culture, convergences, movement schools, marches, housing takeovers, community building, healing, and collective empowerment.
One of the great strengths of the USSF organizing space and assembly process is its community-powered structure. However, the USSF will only be possible with the help of an upspring of grassroots support. Please consider making a donation or becoming a monthly sustainer in these crucial remaining months leading up to the June 2015 US Social Forum in Philadelphia.
