Amidst the rightward political shift around us, we, the Beyond Capitalism Working Group in the Lehigh Valley, introduce Left Turn to provide critical left perspectives and analyses. We argue that shifting left is necessary to build a just and ecologically sustainable future.
Our premier issue includes a variety of topics thanks to all of our contributors. We would like to thank those who helped to make Left Turn possible and the Alliance for Sustainable Communities-Lehigh Valley, under which Beyond Capitalism was founded in 2013 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
For considerations of space, we have decided not to include notes at the end of each article. Readers who wish to obtain them can contact the editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the next issue of Left Turn we aim to cover alternatives to capitalism. Because 2018 marks the 200th birthday of Karl Marx, we will also commemorate his life and work.
We welcome submissions, comments, concerns, or suggestions for future topics sent to email@example.com. We hope Left Turn contributes to the struggles of others for a better society.
