What regional focial forums have been held in North America?Edit

Momentum is building in and around the US with several new forums starting up in 2006-07, including the first with a national focus.

  • The Midwest Social Forum (Wikipedia) grew out of the Midwest Radical Scholars and Activists Conference in 1983. That annual event morphed into RadFest in the late 1990s and then took on the “social forum” name in 2003. The 2006 event was in July in Milwaukee.
  • Chicago held its third annual forum in May 2006.
  • London, Canada, held its second annual forum in June 2006.
  • Houston, Texas started up a new forum in April 2006.
  • The Southeast Social Forum (Wikipedia) was started in June 2006 in Durham, North Carolina.
  • Maine is held a Social Forum in July 2006.
  • The Border Social Forum (scroll down for English) was held October 2006 in Juárez, Mexico, across the border from El Paso, Texas.
  • Boston (Wikipedia) held a forum in July 2004. A group is now planning a forum for Western Massachussetts.
  • Los Angeles is planning a Social Forum for 2007.
  • New York held social forums in November 2001, January 2003, and November 2004. Their site is down now, but there are some interesting pages still up that show some of their planning process (e.g., 1, 2, 3, 4). The people behind it are not currently planning another local event, but are participating in the upcoming national event in Atlanta.


Most of this page is adapted from the Los Angeles Social Forumpage.
