STORIES OF RECONSTRUCTION AND HOPE
Poets and Activists Celebrate 5 years of Left Turn Magazine

Featured performers: Headrush (Chicano Spoken Word Troupe)
June Jordan’s Poetry For the People alumni: Ananda Esteva, Maria Poblet and Jim Saliba

Join cutting-edge poets and activists in a night of celebration of Left Turn Magazine’s fifth anniversary. Left Turn has become a major source of social justice information, even providing first hand reports from Iraq, New Orleans, Brazil and Palestine. The magazine has earned seven Project Censored awards.

About Left Turn:

Left Turn is a national network of activists engaged in exposing and fighting the consequences of global capitalism and imperialism. Rooted in a variety of social movements, we are anti-capitalists, radical feminists, anti-racists, and anti-imperialists working to build resistance and alternatives to corporate power and empire.

Through our publication, Left Turn Magazine, our website and other forums, we seek to create spaces for our various movements to reflect and strategize. The magazine serves as a resource to grassroots movements by reporting on and analyzing local and global struggles for justice. It is an all volunteer publication written by activists for activists.

We are committed to modelling the world we want to see by organizing collectively, democratically and without hierarchy, both internally and in the larger movement. Whether working on a local community campaign or doing international solidarity work, we seek to fight all forms of oppression through our organizing.

We recognize the importance of struggles waged by people and communities most affected by the policies of globalization and empire, whether in Brooklyn or Baghdad. Through each aspect of our work we highlight these struggles and forge connections between them in order to build a stronger more effective movement here in the heart of the empire.

Finally, we wish to project politics of hope, inspiration and solidarity based on both the rich history of social movements and the visionary work of everyday people coming together to radically transform society and bring about a more just world.
