Philadelphia US Social Forum
The US Social Forum taking place in Philadelphia, June 25-28, 2015 is a convergence driven by the understanding that people’s movements are what create social change. It is an opportunity for regional and issue-specific social justice projects to work toward broader unity. The goal is to map out action plans for a cohesive movement and organize to be on the offense against all forms of oppression. The Philadelphia USSF is anchored by the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign and Disabled In Action, and rooted in the themes of immigration, political democracy, disability, youth rights and poverty. As a movement we will create spaces for strategy discussions, political education, People's Movement Assemblies, local actions, art and culture, convergences, movement schools, marches, housing takeovers, community building, healing, and collective empowerment. We know that a better world is possible and that it can be achieved.
