This committee first recognizes the fundamental lesson from the history of earlier populist and leftist efforts to make a more democratic society: that class-based struggle cannot be waged for long while ignoring race and that race-based struggle cannot be waged for long while ignoring class. Raising both race and class consciousness is necessary for a democratic socialist movement to unfold from place-based communities. Only then can organized communities overcome the ideological and material continuation of institutional-structural white supremacy in both U.S. civil society and its social geography. Our committee focuses on dialogue, education, coalition work, and direct action that advances multiracial solidarity as a crucial prerequisite to a united working class. Out of many colors, one class.
