To the Left, To the Left…Forum

On March 18-20 the 2011 Left Forum, the country’s largest gathering of left and progressive thinkers and activists, will descend upon the NYC Campus. And not only are you invited to attend, some of you are even presenting!

More than a dozen Pace students, faculty, and staff will be presenting their panels on a range of topics including engaging youth to cultivate global peace, breaking the silence, the unhappy marriage of loneliness and capitalism, and much more, to thousands of people as part of the 2011 Left Forum, held at Pace for the third year in a row.

Pace panelists include:

An international annual conference of scholars, activists, artists, and journalists, the Left Forum will meet on the NYC Campus on March 18-20 for a weekend of more than 300 panels and 1,000 speakers, which include Cornel West, racial justice champion and one of America’s most provocative public intellectuals, and Barbara Ehrenrich, social critic, essayist and author of the bestselling book Nickel and Dimed, who will be part of the opening address and kick off the conference’s theme: Towards a Politics of Solidarity.

While general admission to the entire three-day program is $60, registration for members of the Pace Community is only $20 and is free for those willing to volunteer a few hours. Be a part of this unique conference by volunteering with media, videography, registration, as an information guide, and more!
