This year’s Left Forum, June 8-9 at Pace University, will include a series of panels on Palestine featuring Al-Awda members and allies and addressing important issues about Palestine: BDS, the right of return, Arab movements, and more.

Each spring Left Forum convenes the largest gathering in North America of the US and international Left. Continuing a tradition begun in the 1960s, we bring together intellectuals and organizers to share perspectives, strategies, experience and vision. For the US and the world, revitalizing an American Left has never been more urgent; Left Forum has a critical role to play in that undertaking. Register online here, or at the door.
