Left Forum Video Internship

Bookmark This


Continuing a tradition that began in the 1960s, Left Forum convenes an international conference each year in New York City. The conference involves a broad spectrum of progressive intellectuals, organizers and academics, who come together to share ideas to transform the world; to better understand commonalities, differences, and alternatives to current predicaments; and to engage a wide range of critical perspectives on the world. Left Forum 2015 drew more than 4,200 participants for 400 panels. Speakers include Noam Chomsky, Angela Davis, Harry Belafonte, Arundhati Roy, Naomi Klein, Cornel West, Bolivian Vice President Álvaro García Linera, Frances
Fox Piven, Amy Goodman, Slavoj Žižek, Grace Lee Boggs, Michael Moore, Marina Sitrin, and Immortal Technique.
