3/23, Why We Need to Fight for Trans Liberation NOW!

Mon, 03/20/2017 - 13:10
Public Forum:
Why We Need to Fight for Trans Liberation NOW!
Thursday, March 23, 7pm 358 Washington Street, Dorchester 23 Bus from Ruggles or short walk from the Fields Corner T station contact@bostonsocialism.org

The average life expectancy for black trans women in the United States is 36 years old. 86% of transgender teens report feeling unsafe in school. This is the social context for Trump and his legion of bigot's removal of federal guidelines protecting transgender students. While they try to hide behind the mantle of "state's rights", make no mistake this is a direct assault against the most vulnerable and oppressed people in society. It's an authorization of murder and we can't let them get away with it.
Come to the Boston ISO's public forum this Thursday and join a discussion about how we can fight for and win full equality and liberation for queer and transgender people.

Fri, 02/24/2017 - 09:41

Socialism 2017: Build the Left, Fight the Right A four-day conference of socialist politics, debate, and entertainment July 6–9, 2017 • Hyatt Regency McCormick Place • Chicago Socialism 2017 is a four-day conference bringing together hundreds of socialists and radical activists from around the country to take part in discussions about Marxism, working-class history, and the debates and strategies for organizing today. Every year, the Socialism conferences aims to be a place where activists can share lessons from their struggles—from the boycott, divestment and sanction campaign for Palestine to the fight for LGBT liberation, from the Fight for 15 to the struggle to stop the destruction of the planet, the fight against racism, and more. With well over 100 meetings, the weekend will feature left-wing authors and thinkers discussing the debates on the left today, as well as meetings on the hidden history of working-class and socialist struggles. So join us in Chicago July 6–9, 2017!
