Friday, July 1, 6:30 pm
Corboy Law Center, Room 206
25 East Pearson St., Chicago
(1 block North of Chicago Ave, ½ block East of State St.)


Today’s ongoing struggles against racial injustice, economic inequality and environmental destruction raise new possibilities–as well as new questions–concerning whether a viable alternative to capitalism can be developed for our time. Join us for a discussion in which the panelists will probe this issue from a variety of critical perspectives.
