Members and sympathizers of Solidarity are involved in a new blog for radicals working in social services, medical care, and nonprofit community organizing. Called The Rank-and-Filer, the site features political analysis, movement history, personal testimonials and critical debates related to social services.
Named for a militant, socialist- and communist-led movement among social workers in the 1930s, The Rank-and-Filer bridges Marxism and radical thought into the struggles to defend, improve, and transform welfare programs, nonprofits, and other service programs.
Editors of the new blog are now accepting submissions of accessible pieces of possible relevance to radical social service workers. You can send submissions to
firstname.lastname@example.org. New posts go up every Friday.
