The coronavirus pandemic and the economic crisis it triggered have laid bare the priorities of the capitalist system. It is our lives vs. their profits.

In the past five months, while the richest Americans have raked in $675 billion, millions of people out of work are on the brink of losing their homes, while many of those who still have jobs have been forced to work in unsafe conditions.

But workers have also been fighting back with protests, walkouts, and strikes, from teachers successfully battling school reopenings to Amazon workers fighting for health and safety measures.

Join us for a discussion with workers who are on the frontlines of the resistance about strengthening and building solidarity with this movement and the role that socialists can play in it.
