Event description

Description

Over the past 10 months of the Trump Administration, we've seen a barrage of right-wing atrocities and social suffering -- from the far-right carnival of hate in Charlottesville, to the unnatural disasters of Harvey and Irma, to increasing police violence and terror, to the Trump administration ending DACA protections and increasing deportations.

We need a left-wing resistance that protests the reactionaries wherever they appear, and that can put forward a political alternative to the right's scapegoating and hate.

Come out for the second-annual Ohio Marxism Day School, a day-long conference on the politics of revolutionary Marxism and the fight for a socialist future, to discuss building this alternative.

Hosted by Midwest branches of the International Socialist Organization, session topics will include: Why Capitalism Needs Racism. Gender, Sexuality, & Socialism, No Ban, No Wall: Nationalism & Immigration, System Change, Not Climate Change, and much more.

Conference tickets range from $0 - $20. Proceeds will go to providing lunch for attendees and covering space costs.

If you need housing, childcare, or other accommodations, please let us know by October 28 at the latest.
