1. “Marxist-Humanists with principles”
We’ll review and clarify our April Statement of Principles, discussing questions about their meaning, our purpose, and how to concretize them in light of current realities. We’ll review our progress so far and measure how we are living up to the Principles in organizational practice. Time allotted: ½ day.
2. “The future of Marxist-Humanism hangs in the balance”
We’ll discuss a draft of a new public statement with a view to finalizing and approving it. The statement will project the need for all those who care about the continuation and development of Marxist-Humanism organizationally to ally with our effort in order to overcome the dangers facing Marxist-Humanism’s future. Time allotted: ½ day.

Further discussion of our progress or lack thereof since our founding, including our website, publication, series on the economic crisis, outreach, and political and philosophic work.
