for a full schedule, online registration and more!

Sponsored by International Socialist Organization Seattle and Portland branches,  Socialist Worker, Haymarket Books and the International Socialist Review

Capitalism isn't working. Socialism is the alternative—a world organized for human need, not profit, where resources are controlled by and for the vast majority, instead of by a tiny rich minority. Real change depends on struggle and action by our side.

The Northwest Socialist Conference is one of six regional socialist conferences nationwide that are dedicated to arming a new generation of rebels, activists and organizers with arguments and ideas for a revolutionary socialist alternative, learning our history of rebellion and resistance, and discussing strategies for building organization and winning struggles for real change.
