Now in its 13th year, Left Forum has grown into one the largest annual convergences of the left. The 2016 conference featured over 350 workshops/panels, multiple musical performances and film screenings, a comedy show and a large grassroots-organization/book fair. In 2016, over 4000 people — including artists, activists and great thinkers from around the globe — were drawn to NYC to engage in critical discussions and debates, build coalitions, socialize with new friends and long-time allies, learn, reflect and strategize for a new future.

Building our collective strength as a movement and as a community committed to social justice is more important than ever. Join us for Left Forum 2017.
