Many contributors are associated with Democratic Socialists of America.
Now published by The Labor Neighbor Research and Training Center in cooperation with the Organizers’ Forum, Social Policy reports on and "analyzes contemporary movements for social change in the workplace, the community, and the world".
- Social Policy seeks to inform and report on the work of labor and community organizers who build union and constituency-based groups, run campaigns, and build movements for social justice, economic equality, and democratic participation in the U.S. and around the world.
- Social Policy offers unparalleled coverage of globalization and international labor and social movements, from the role of the AFL-CIO in Venezuela, to land struggles in Brazil and Zimbabwe, to inside debates over the direction of social change in South African and Brazil.
