It is our great pleasure to invite you to a very important and exciting event, the details of which and the participating organizations are listed below. (Download a printable flyer here.) 

I do not believe it is necessary to talk at length about the need for a strong left in the USA, how weak we presently are, and the long fractious history of periods of lack of cooperation among us. This event, with seven different participating organizations, is not seen as a stand alone event. It is hoped that it will lead to not just broader discussions but more concrete steps towards unity of action as well.

With Mark Solomon of the CCDS leading off based on his widely circulated and discussed article in Portside and respondents from Jacobin Magazine, Democratic Socialists of America, CPUSA, and Freedom Road Socialist Organization, we think this will be a most interesting initial dialogue. Another unique aspect of this event is that we intend this to be a relatively brief program. The reception to follow will be of equal importance so that everyone attending the program can have an opportunity to interact with the panelists, and each other.
