The LF is a large yearly gathering of movement activists and scholars comprised of several hundred panels, workshops, and plenaries. This is the third year that NY RC regions participated. The first two were as United to End Racism (UER) and this year was as Sustaining all Life (SAL). Our panel/workshop theme this year was: Tools for Listening When We Disagree.

LF Description from website

In the Beginning

Left Forum was founded in the 1960s as the Socialist Scholars Conference (SSC) by Bogdan Denitch, Stanley Aronowitz, and others. The Socialist Scholars Conference was re-founded in 1981 and was meant to be a broad effort by new left academics to create a forum in which to present theoretical and historical work in a mostly scholarly format, but for an audience reaching far beyond academic circles.

Tools for Listening When We Disagree
Disagreement is common in movement work as in all aspects of life. It can cement disunity or move us forward to effective strategy and action. It can make us lose our human connection with those we disagree with. In this hands-on workshop we will try out tools for listening more effectively when we disagree. By practicing these tools with fellow organizers we can listen better to those we want to organize. We will practice these tools in the context of care of the environment.
