The Socialist Workers Party is hosting its annual International Active Workers Conference at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio, June 9-11.

The conference will bring together members and supporters of the communist movement and others from around the world who are interested in building a revolutionary working-class party capable of leading working people in their millions to take political power. The three days of presentations, classes and other activities will take up key questions facing workers and farmers today.

Last year’s conference was held under the banner “Leading the Working Class to Take Power: Join the Socialist Workers Party! Build the Communist Vanguard!”

The gathering will feature talks and classes by Socialist Workers Party leaders addressing Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine and the courageous resistance of Ukrainian workers and farmers, as well as opposition to growing imperialist militarization and the threat of new and wider wars; the state of the class struggle in the U.S. and building a fighting alliance of workers and farmers; the importance of the example of Cuba’s socialist revolution amid capitalism’s growing world disorder; the challenges facing working-class families and women as the crisis of capitalism deepens; and the place of Jew-hatred in the imperialist epoch and how to fight it. Plans for bold use of the Socialist Workers Party’s 2022 campaign will be laid out.

If you’re interested in building a working-class party and want to learn more about the communist movement, and would like to discuss attending the conference, contact the SWP or Communist League branch nearest you.
