What’s the Next Left? Its the collection of movements post-communism advocating for a post-capitalist society. We are building a society which uses its technology and resources not only to guarantee an acceptable lifestyle for all of its citizens but also to maximize the opportunities for self expression.
Next Left Chicago is a space where we apply our social understanding of power to our organizing locally. We reflect on engaging with institutions and creating our own. Our focus is on the Midwest and in particular Chicago because of its unrealized potential to be a model of how society can work cooperatively.
