In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision overturning the Defense of Marriage Act, Sherry Wolf spoke at the Socialism 2013 conference about what’s next in the LGBTQ movement’s fight for equality: trans-inclusiveness, tackling the “youth, queer, homeless crisis” and continuing to expand rights for all, regardless of someone’s relationship status, gender expression or sexuality.
Sherry Wolf, Editorial Board member of the International Socialist Review, asked activists to join the long term struggle at the plenary session of the Midwest Socialist Conference on November 3. (26:51 minutes)
There are no quick solutions, she said. Making a commitment to the long term struggle is “the only way we are going to win,” she said.
The Midwest Socialist Conference was hosted at the University of Illinois of Chicago from November 3-4, 2007. It was one of the regional socialist conferences taking place that weekend across the country.
