The Socialist Workers Party is hosting an International Active Workers Conference at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio, July 22-24. As COVID restrictions are being lifted, this is the first time in nearly two years the party has been able to host a gathering of this kind.

There will be talks by leaders of the Socialist Workers Party on key questions facing working people today; classes on lessons from the history of the labor and communist movement, and the example of the Cuban Revolution; a panel presentation featuring SWP and Communist League election candidates; and plenty of time for informal discussion with conference participants and evening socials.

The conference takes place as the economy has picked up and more workers are getting back to work. Some strikes and union-organizing drives have broken out, an indication that growing numbers are looking for a way to stand up to attacks by bosses as they seek to shift the burden of their crisis onto the backs of workers and farmers. Plans will be made at the conference for participants to join in campaigning teams and to bring solidarity to striking workers.

If you are interested in being part of building a revolutionary working-class party and would like to discuss attending the conference, contact the SWP or the Communist League branch nearest you listed in the directory.
