We host accessible educational programming that contributes to building and strengthening popular movements in New York City and beyond as well as a revitalized non-sectarian left intellectual culture rooted in the struggles of the poor and dispossessed.

Our educational programming includes topics such as: history, political economy, social theory, racial/gender/LGBTQIA/immigrant justice, collective strategies for organizing, liberation theology, and many others—with an internationalist focus. Driven by our organizational commitment to building unity across historic lines of division, our programming covers a wide range of subjects, movements, and pedagogical methods.
