The International Socialist Organization is committed to building an movement that participates in today’s struggles for justice and liberation – and, ultimately, in the struggle for different kind of world. Around the country our members are involved in a number of social movements: the movement to stop war and occupation, fights against racism and anti-immigrant scapegoating, the struggle for women’s rights like the right to choose abortion, opposing anti-gay bigotry, and standing up for workers’ rights. The misery that millions of people around the world face is rooted in the society we live in: capitalism, where the few who rule profit from the labor of the vast majority of the population. A world free of exploitation – socialism – is not only possible but worth fighting for. The ISO stands in the tradition of revolutionary socialism and the belief that workers themselves – the vast majority of the population – are the only force that can lead the fight to win a socialist society. Socialism can’t be brought about from above, but has to be won by workers themselves. We see our task as building an independent socialist organization with members organizing in our workplaces, our schools and our neighborhoods to bring socialist ideas to the struggles we are involved in today, and the vision of a socialist world in the future.
