On September 1, 2010 Social Democrats USA held its biennial convention. Because of the travel distances involved, the convention was held by “web-conference”. The convention was stimulating to say the least. Guests Herb Engstrom of the Santa Clara County Democratic Committee and Roger Clayman, Executive Director of the Long Island Federation of Labor, provided great insight into the SD past, and presented good reason for an SD future. We also celebrated the start of a new relationship with the USW. Fred Redmond, USW VP of Human Affairs and Chairman of the A. Philip Randolph Institute states loudly that workers are severely threatened today and we need help from all quarters. Please see a summary of the convention in the attached report.
