The May 14 New England Conference on Socialism in Boston is less than two weeks away. Whether you're looking to organize against war, racism, sexism and capitalist exploitation, or just want to learn more about socialism, this exciting event is for you.
The conference will feature panels, workshops and discussion on a wide variety of topics, from the movements against war and occupation abroad to the attacks on working people at home. Activists and organizers from a broad range of struggles will be joining us as guest speakers, including:
Dorotea Manuela is a member of Boston May Day Committee and a long-time immigrant rights
activist in Boston. Dorotea has been engaged in the struggle against the racist "Secure
Communities" program and is a passionate fighter for full rights for all oppressed people. She
most recently helped organize a rally for International Workers Day.
Ardeshir Ommani is an Iranian-born writer, political economist and president of the American
Iranian Friendship Committee (AIFC). Ommani has written a number of articles documenting
U.S. foreign policy toward Iran and has been deeply involved in the anti-war movement and
the struggle against U.S. wars and occupations.
Sarah Sloan is the National Staff Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition and a member of the
Washington, D.C., branch of the Party for Socialism and Liberation. She has worked with the
ANSWER Coalition since its formation in 2001 and has been a key organizer of many national
anti-war actions over the past decade. She is a founding member of the PSL and a member of
its Central Committee.
