When Mississippi tried to silence Black mayor, People’s World was there

As a young reporter back in the early 1980s, I stayed for weeks at a time in the Mississippi Delta covering the story of the first African-American mayor elected in that state since Reconstruction. But it’s not to the Tchula, Mississippi town hall that I frequently went to meet with him.

The voter uprising: A sign of good things to come?

  The popular chant, “This is what democracy looks like!” can mean many things: people hitting the streets, getting arrested in peaceful protest, organizing themselves into unions, lobbying their elected officials, and yes, even the “simple” act of voting.

Sunrise Movement

The climate crisis is one of the biggest issues for young voters and swing voters this year.

Polls continue to show that when a candidate is stronger on fighting the climate crisis young people are more likely to mobilize around them and get out the vote.

Believe it or not, in its current from, Biden's plan is stronger and more progressive than Bernie's was in 2016. That didn't happen out of nowhere. It happened because young people have been pushing politicians and the public on climate for years and we're starting to see the effects of our power.

We are the reason that Biden's climate platform is as strong as it is. We went to his unity task force, and we didn't get everything we need, but we moved it significantly to left and that's why it's the most progressive platform from to date.

We've teamed up with @soyouwanttotalkabout to break down Biden vs. Trump's plan on climate and show you exactly what each candidate is fighting for.

You can help us kick Trump out of office, flip the Senate and usher in an era of the Green New Deal by joining us for only 2 hours a week to get out the vote.

Celebrate the CPUSA's 101st anniversary and ensure we can help bring a socialist future by donating $101 or whatever you can spare during these difficult times.

  I joined the Communist Party USA once I learned of the Party’s proud history of being an integral part of our country's social/political movement. We were always fighting to bring permanent change to a system never designed to meet working people’s needs.

Drop out! Tune in to one another. Turn on the community’s power ye working class sisters and brothers. Erase all doubt and occupy the alumni’s tower. Don’t be a woe-is-me fan of every big woman or man on campus. Don’t play champ-e-e-e-n hockey where monied spectators congregate. ‘tis far far better to raise a ruckus and play hard-knock red-green hooky. Let’s germinate the architectural knowledge that we’ll grow to build anew. Mummify the gilded dynasty-of-the-few. Drop out of the electoral college! Drop out! Drop out! [2019]
