Join the International Marxist Tendency
Help build the international revolutionary socialist organization!

Interested in joining the International Marxist Tendency?

We are a growing organization of workers and youth with branches across the country, with many more to come. We are looking for new comrades to help build stronger branches where we have them and new ones where we don’t. By being a member of the International Marxist Tendency, you will also be part of a worldwide network of revolutionary Marxists fighting for socialism in over 45 countries.

Political agreement with the program and ideas of the IMT as explained on this site and in the pages of Socialist Revolution is the first step towards becoming a member. Have a look and let us know what you think. Be sure to check out the Resources and Education section, which has articles covering our history, reports from our events internationally, and important documents we’ve published. We also have the Marxism FAQ which explains many of our positions on a number of issues. We also offer a Marxist Education Plan which will help focus your studies of Marxist theory.

We invite all those interested in the IMT to contact us with any theoretical or organizational questions they may have. Members are expected to pay monthly dues in order to build the organization, to sell the newspaper locally, to defend and spread the ideas of the IMT in public, to participate in local branches or form them where they are not yet in existence, to recruit new comrades to the IMT, and to participate in the democratic structures of the organization. We are building a nation-wide Marxist organization, the ultimate goal of which is the establishment of democratic socialism in the US and internationally. We are confident that together we can achieve our goal.

We’ll work with you to get one up and running – every branch started with just one person with the initiative and dedication to make it happen. Why not you? You can start the process of finding others to work with locally by printing out the following leaflets and getting them into Marxist books at your local bookstore, library, posting them at school, in coffee shops, etc. Feel free to add your own local contact info as well.

You can use these petition style leaflets to sign people up to get more information on the IMT.
