Save the date! This week the National Committee of Social Democrats USA approved the dates and location for the biennial convention. It will be held in Pittsburgh on Thursday Oct 23 and Friday Oct 24. Our last convention was held in Buffalo in August of 2012. We are pleased to bring the convention to Pittsburgh this year, another city with significant labor history.
We are also very pleased to announce that Dr. Sheri Berman, Chair of Political Science at Barnard College, will be a featured speaker. Sheri is an expert on social democracy and the history of the Left. She has written a number of books and papers on the birth and growth of European social democracy. Sheri also sits on the Editorial Board of Dissent magazine. She has written a number of articles for Foreign Affairs. She will bring a great new perspective to our discussions and we are delighted she is coming to Pittsburgh. Additional speakers will be announced in coming weeks.
Any SDUSA members who want to attend should call the office at 412-894-1799.
