Various Authors
Date Published:

Left Turn magazine introduces a forum in which voices of the Left will discuss the two-party system, grassroots activism, and the 2004 electoral contest. Our hope is that these contributions help further the discourse about what role, if any, activists should play in the upcoming elections. This will be a regular section in Left Turn magazine and on our website through November, 2004.
