As capitalism squeezes more and more, people are fighting back. Left movements are on the rise across the country. From Black Lives Matter to the Women’s March, from the Fight for Fifteen to Immigrant Workers’ Rights, resistance is growing across the U.S. and Socialism is an idea whose time has come. At the Solidarity Midwest Day School, activists engaged in these resistance struggles will gather to learn from each other in interactive workshops, classes, and informal discussion.

Some Topics include:
– From the Classroom to the Streets: A Rank and File Perspective on the Teachers Movement
