A unique phenomenon in the U.S. and the world, Left Forum convenes the largest annual conference of a broad spectrum of left and progressive intellectuals, activists, academics, organizations and the interested public. Conference participants come together to engage a wide range of critical perspectives on the world, to discuss differences, commonalities, and alternatives to current predicaments, and to share ideas for understanding and transforming the world. The conference is held each year in New York City.
Left Forum 2012 featured Michael Moore, RoseAnn DeMoro, Cornel West, Chris Hedges, Marina Sitrin, M1, Nnimmo Bassey, and Wally Shawn. It involved 4,500 attendees, 1,300 speakers and over 400 panels. Left Forum is the culmination of the creative efforts of hundreds of people who engage the gamut of volunteer activities, from helping generate artistic events and panels, to outreach and involvement of a rainbow of organizations and individuals.
