With the economy in shambles and with wars and 
occupations continuing, the challenge to change these conditions 
confronts us all. More than a year ago, millions placed their hopes in 
Barack Obama and the Democrats to solve these problems. But after months
 of broken promises and concessions to conservatives, jobs are scarce, 
the banks are unregulated, and full equality for LGBT people remains 
elusive.

Socialism 2010—to be held in both Chicago and San
  Francisco—will provide an unparalleled opportunity for new and veteran
 activists and scholars to explore questions about how we got into this 
mess and how we can get out of it.

Last year, more than 1,800 
people turned out to explore the history of struggles of ordinary 
people, to learn about radical figures who led social movements and to 
debate theoretical questions that can help us change the world.

Join


 us for more than 100 talks on issues such as: What is the Real Marxist 
Tradition?, Race in the Obama Era, Capitalism, Climate Change, and the 
Future of Humanity, Abortion and Women’s Liberation, and Building a New 
Left in the Obama Era.

Don’t miss the chance to meet, talk and 
socialize with hundreds of others like you who want to build an 
alternative to a system of greed, racism, war and oppression.
