Red State

August 25, 2018 - 9:30 am to 5:00 pm in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Red State – A Nebraska Left Conference is a one day event designed to bring leftists across the Great Plains together to discuss collective liberation and the Marxist and socialist politics that will get us there. Being in the plains, a place often derided as backwards by the rest of the country, has dampened many spirits. It has also created the conditions essential to a society that works for the many, not the few. We know that a single spark can start a prairie fire.

The conference is sponsored by The Black Cat House, the Lincoln and Omaha chapters of the Democratic Socialists of America, and the Nebraska Left Coalition.
