Join us as we hear from immigrant leaders, labor leaders, and public education teachers, among others, on the importance of connecting our struggles and building an independent working class party that is rooted in our movements, that is accountable to the grassroots through labor and community assemblies, and that can stand up to both corporate parties. The time is ripe to seize the momentum of Striketober and the growing movements for racial, gender, and climate justice to win critical reforms for all working class people and oppressed communities. Our time is now.

The Budget Reconciliation Bill has excluded legalization for undcoumented immigrants,  leaving 11 million undocumented immigrants at risk of deportation. But from California to Chicago, from New York to Washington D.C., undocumented families are saying enough

-no more detentions

-no more deportations

-yes! to a clear and permanent path to legalization and citizenship
