Socialists Invade Memphis!
Memphis is hosting the Socialist Party USA's Nation Organizing Conference (NOC) this year! The city will be teeming with comrades from around the country. Please join us for this radical event. The plenary speakers are two Memphis locals, long active in the struggle. Coby Smith, organizer during the Civil Rights Movement as a leader within the Black Organizing Project, the Invaders, and an activist to this day. Elmore Nickleberry is a sanitation worker who marched during the pivotal '68 strike, who still works for the sanitation department today. Some of the Workshops include - Immigration policy in the South, Memphis Art Brigade/ the blacklist, Emotional Healing for Activists, GIS mapping, Organizing a Local and more.
