The weather may be balmy in sunny Los Angeles, but the political climate is anything but.

Police are targeting immigrants, unionists, and radicals; 58,000 people are homeless, 30 percent of them women; the right wing is in a frenzy over LGBT rights; and the doors of education are closed to many young people of color, while the doors of the prison-industrial complex are wide open. At the same time, LA is a national flashpoint for struggles against injustices like these.

That makes LA the perfect place for the revolutionary feminist Freedom Socialist Party (FSP) to convene over the Memorial Day weekend, May 24-27. The convention will be an opportunity for FSP members and friends to discuss how best to tackle the problems of the day, from the calamitous effects of the Great Recession on workers and the poor to the challenge of saving the planet from the fossil fuel ogres.
