Our USSF Workshop Recommendations

Feel overwhelmed by the huge number of events and workshops happening at the US Social Forum? So were we! So we put our heads together and came up with a list of recommendations. If you’re at the Forum and want a printed palm card of this list, drop by our table and we’ll be happy to hand you one in person! We also have a longer list of Eco Justice-specific workshops you can check out as well. Workshops in bold are the ones we’re putting on as an organization.

If you’re not sure you’re making it to the tables but want it anyway, here’s a print-ready version you can download.
