Socialism is a common-sense path to a fairer, more prosperous and more democratic USA. Socialism is also a desperate necessity as capitalism and its unrelenting drive for profits threaten to make our planet uninhabitable. Working families in America – the 99% - between us create all the products and services that make our country the richest nation in the history of humankind. It doesn’t make sense that these collectively produced resources are owned and controlled by a tiny handful of billionaires. The fight for socialism is a dynamic process to fulfill the vision of a future of peace, justice and fairness for our nation and our world.

    Hi Nathan, I don't know whether your commitment to 'modern sporting rifles' disqualifies you from membership in the CPUSA.  That's a question for our membership committee, whom you can contact at membership@cpusa.org.  I will say that it puts you at odd with the progressive and democratic currents of our country, who have long advocated for treating guns like any of the other potentially dangerous items and substances that we regulate in the interest of public safety. I want to take a look, though, at your claim that better parenting is the only solution to mass shootings. In our view, capitalism has a toxic effect on families. Reforms like shortening the work day and the work week and providing a strong...

The Connecticut district of the Communist Party had a busy year of struggle. Take a look a look at our video  reviewing the district's work last year.  From the fight for 15 to immigrant rights, to jobs for youth, the Connecticut Communist Party has been working to build resistance to the Trump agenda.  Key to the district's approach is working at the grassroots to involve ordinary working-class people, black, Latino, Asian and white in the fight for a better life.  This also applies to our election work whether it be for the Board of Aldermen, the State Assembly or Congress....

  Washington, D.C. --- In a tremendous show of unity, under a sea of Puerto Rican flags being waved high, thousands of Puerto Ricans and their supporters joined in the Unity March for Puerto Rico in the nation’s capital November 19 to demand justice for Puerto Rico. Demonstrators from across the northeast, Ohio, and as far as Chicago raised their voices in unison to demand the U.S. fully fund the relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, which tore through the island more than two months ago. Most of the island is still without basic needs, electricity, and potable...

CHICAGO: The Rev. William Barber, Poor People’s Campaign, greeted a massive audience by Video at the Labor Notes conference by saying, “Help save the soul of this nation.
