Dear Friend of the Campaign for Peace and Democracy,

     As you probably know, this weekend the Left Forum will be meeting in New York City at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, at 524 West 59th Street (between 10th and 11th Avenues), in Manhattan, starting Friday and ending on Sunday. There will be hundreds of panels to choose from; below are a few CPD recommendations. The astute reader will notice that in a couple of instances we recommend more than one panel scheduled for the same time; we understand that you can't be two or three places at once, but wanted you to know the options. Detailed information about the full conference, registration procedures, etc. is available here.
