Speakers

DSA participation

DSA's panel on "Multiculturalism and the Left" with Barbara Ehrenreich, Cornel West and Jim Sleeper was "the hit of the conference."

DSA's panel on "Socialist Perspectives on Health Care," with Victor Sidel and Linnea Capps attracted over 100 activists. New York City DSA organized a thought provoking panel discussion on Multicultural Coalition Building with former DSA Field Organizer Shakoor Aljuwani and Vernice Miller of the Center for Constitutional Rights.

At the DSA reception, Cornel West, Frances Fox Piven, Bogdan Denitch and Michael Lighty gave convincing pitches for joining DSA and inspiration to current members. [2]
