Crisis as Opportunity: Voices from the U.S. Social Forum

Participants said it wasn’t a conference, but a movement building process toward ecological and economic justice.


Listen to our first production:

The Road to Detroit: The U.S. Social Forum 2010

On this edition, we look at how Domestic Workers got organized at the last US Social Forum. We also ask–what can we learn from the fall and rise of one of America’s great industrial cities–Detroit?


You can join us in this important venture by supporting our work. Your contribution will help us train grassroots activists in media-making skills and bring their voices to listeners around the world.

With your help we will bring listeners the hot economic and environmental justice stories, analysis, and inspiration from the US Social Forum. Help us get these stories out!

Please make a gift today. Your support today allows us to move boldly ahead with our plans for training and radio programs.

We  invite you to come along on the road to Detroit and beyond. In fact, we won’t be able to get there without you.
