Open letter to some ex-leaders of the ISO

I AM a survivor of sexual and emotional abuse that I believe was facilitated by the culture you helped to create in the International Socialist Organization.It took all of about 30 minutes of being in an ISO space before a man took acute interest in me. All of a week before he gave me his number and asked if we could hang out sometime. All of a month…

IMMEDIATELY BEFORE the crisis currently rocking the International Socialist Organization, our members fought hard to change it. We fought to transform our group into one that would be run by its own…

Critical thoughts about Draper’s “micro-sect”

THE RECENT situation in the ISO has rightfully produced a trenchant criticism of what has been termed the “micro-party” form of revolutionary socialist organization.One of the pieces that has been dusted off and heralded as affording valuable insight is Hal Draper’s 1973 essay “Anatomy of the Micro-Sect.” This and the similar, though less…

Comrades in the ISO did fantastic work in labor and social justice struggles and helped to build important institutions distinct from yet linked to the ISO, like Haymarket Books, WeAreMany.org and the International Socialist Review.Yet the ISO itself, as an organization, seemed not to register any discernible…
