A Magazine for Radical Insights

About Convergence

Convergence is a magazine for radical insights. We work with organizers and activists on the frontlines of today’s most pressing struggles to produce articles, videos and podcasts that sharpen our collective practice, lift up stories from the grassroots, and promote strategic debate. Our goal is to create the shared strategy needed to change our society and the world. Our community of readers, viewers, and content producers are united in our purpose: winning multi-racial democracy and a radically democratic economy.

Today, our movements continue to grow, but so too does the threat from the racist, authoritarian right. We believe we can defeat them, dismantle racial capitalism, and win the change we need by building a new governing majority that is driven by a convergence of grassroots social movements, labor movements, socialists, and progressives.

Join us.

Organizing Upgrade – now Convergence – is the best thing out there for serious thinking on the Left.

Robin D.G. Kelley, Professor of U.S. History at UCLA and author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination

We must dare to win. Winning justice means winning power. Winning power is about defeating the autocracy of the boss at work and racist authoritarian right in the streets and in the government. Convergence Magazine is a critical space for us to debate, exchange ideas, dream big, and then take action to win the world.

Lauren Jacobs, Executive Director, Powerswitch Action

One of the main tasks for our movement building efforts is to converge social movements to fight the right, save the planet and advance peoples’ power. Convergence Magazine is where we can turn theory, debate and practice into strategy.

Cindy Wiesner, Executive Director, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance
