Left Forum is the largest annual progressive conference in the country. Also engaged in a range of

events throughout the year, the Forum brings together thousands of conference and event

participants to discuss pressing local, national, and global issues; to better understand

commonalities and differences, as well as alternatives to current predicaments; or to share ideas to

help build social movements.

delivering a social media strategy. We seek creative, skilled individuals interested in helping to

start at the beginning of the school semester.
