Chicago Info. Session. January 5th. A Movement of Movements
The US Social Forum is...The US Social Forum is more than a conference, more than a networking bonanza, more than a reaction to war and repression. The USSF will provide space to build relationships, learn from each other's experiences, share our analysis of the problems our communities face, and bring renewed insight and inspiration. It will help develop leadership and develop consciousness, vision, and strategy needed to realize another world.
- Host an Info Session for your Organization or in your neighborhood

20,000 changemakers will be gathering in Detroit in June from all different sectors and communities to share vision, strategy, practice, and action.
This information session is for people new to the Social Forum organizing. It will orient Chicagoans to the history of the World Social Forum, the plan for Detroit, and how Chicago can use this as a movement building moment.
Hundreds are getting together to fundraise, coordinate travel, and plan events to support the participation of youth, low-income, people of color, and neighborhood folk from affected communities. Come to the session to see how we can link up and build a Chicago that works for everyone.
