From Black Lives Matter to the Women’s March, from Standing Rock to the People’s Climate 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 Summer school, activists engaged in these resistance struggles will gather to learn from each other in interactive workshops, classes, and informal discussion. This year’s school will be in Chicago, at the University of Illinois – Chicago, from the afternoon/evening of Wednesday, July 26 through the evening of Friday, July 28.
