On June 22-26, 2010 social movements from across the United States and globally — including a delegation of more than two dozen Vermonters from the Vermont Workers' Center — converged in Detroit for the second US Social Forum. THE US SOCIAL FORUM is a movement building process. It is not a conference but a space to come up with the peoples’ solutions to the economic, social and ecological crisis. The USSF is a crucial important step in our struggle to build a powerful multi-racial, multisectoral, inter-generational, diverse, inclusive, internationalist movement that transforms this country, and changes history.
The Workers' Center also attended the first US Social Forum in Atlanta in 2007 that drew an estimated 12,000-15,000 people — read about the 2007 delegation here.
