The CME has been educating revolutionists since 1975 by hosting events that are free and open to the public. Through the generosity of volunteers, we provide lectures, films, book talks, strategy meetings and discussion groups from global, national, and local socialists for anyone who believes that capitalism isn't working, and wants to find a better way. We regret that the CME is not accessible.

American Masters/Paul Robeson: Here I Stand presents the life and achievements of an extraordinary man.

He led a life in the vanguard of many movements, achieved international acclaim for his music and suffered tremendous personal sacrifice. His story is one of the great dramas of the 20th century - spanning an international canvas of social upheaval and ideological controversy.

The History of the Indonesian Socialist Women's Movement and Its Relevance to Global Women's Struggles
Anindya Joediono, Women's Rights Activist
In this presentation, Indonesian women's rights activist Anindya Joediono will discuss the history of the Indonesian socialist women's movement before the coup d'etat in 1965. At that time, Indonesian women had greatly contributed to the national liberation and became a strong political base.
What kind of political programs and agendas they had offered to the people? How could they successfully mobilize millions of Indonesian women, with most of them being peasants? Could their movement strategies and agendas be used in today's context? If so, what's their relevance to the current global women's movement?
