National Convention will be held in Chicago, June 13-15,

Convention Discusion will be published seperately in the
lead up to the Convention Discussion, starting Feb 1, 2014.

The trial of George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon
Martin concluded with a not guilty verdict. But Zimmerman is
far from innocent and the entire case reminds us of the
pervasive nature of racism in the U.S.
I very much agree with Sam's report. It is a real
contribution and will help to bring clarity and greater
unity as this phase of the post election struggle proceeds.
It seems that every day there is a new story about State
laws restricting reproductive rights or blocking motion
towards wage equality.
