Among others elected were LLP Coordinator Larry Moskowitz who is national organizer for the Working Families Party, Jim Perlstein, an officer of the Professional Staff Union which represents faculty of the City University of New York, Lester Muata Greene, an EMT worker and member of AFSCME District Council 37, Rhadames Rivera, Vice President of SEIU Local 1199, and Fitzroy Searles of LLP Youth who was an organizer of the One Nation Rally in 2010 in Washington DC.[7]

CCDS convention

At the 2013 Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism convention, the fifth plenary of the convention had “left unity” as the topic. Chaired by Carl Davidson, it took a different form, with Davidson first posing questions to presenters, and asking for short answers, then opening the discussion to the floor. The “interviewees” were Mark Solomon of CCDS, Judith LeBlanc of the CPUSA, and Larry Moskowitz of the Left Labor Project in New York City.

Moskowitz said that the LLP is just four years old and it has forerunners in other progressive labor organizations peculiar to New York. He said the LLP is explicitly socialist, that women and people of color are in the forefront, that it doesn’t interfere in the internal affairs of participating organizations, and the meetings always end by 8PM. There are several thousand on the email list, and he is proud of LLP’s openness. “It hopefully will be possible to develop groups like it in other cities, but frankly, it won’t be easy,” he concluded.[8]
