Join the communists for a weekend of discussions on Marxist theory and revolutionary strategy!

World capitalism is in crisis. Millions of people are looking toward communist ideas to find away out of the impasse. Revolution is on the agenda in country after country. For the movement to succeed, all communists must organize in a cohesive revolutionary party with the correct Marxist theory and program for the transformation of society.

With this aim in mind, the 2023 Marxist School is an in-person event series for revolutionary education, organized by Socialist Revolution, the US section of the IMT. Events are being held from coast to coast, in Minneapolis, New York City, Phoenix, and Bellingham.
