The Philadelphia Site of the US Social Forum is anchored by the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign and Disabled In Action, and rooted in the themes of immigration, political democracy, disability, youth rights and poverty. As a movement we will create spaces for strategy discussions, political education, People’s Movement Assemblies, local actions, art and culture, convergences, movement schools, marches, housing takeovers, community building, healing, and collective empowerment. We know that a better world is possible and that it can be achieved.
Shane Claiborne is a founder and board member of The Simple Way, a faith community in inner city Philadelphia that has helped birth and connect radical faith communities around the world. As a student, Shane worked alongside the Kensington Welfare Rights Union, which is now the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign (An anchor organization of the USSF), during a church takeover to help house homeless families in the Kensington community. This experience is highlighted in his book, The Irresistible Revolution.
Shane invites all of us to join the US Social Forum in Philadelphia or San Jose this June.
Thousands of people from across the country will join us at the Philadelphia Site from June 25th – 28th for the US Social Forum. Together we will lift up the stories and the struggles of the real Philadelphia, together we will build another world.
