At the conference China and the Left: A Socialist Forum held on September 18, 2021 hosted by Qiao Collective at The People’s Forum in New York City.

Speakers and events analyzed current trends in U.S.-China relations, Chinese development, and international relations through a socialist, anti-imperialist lens. The conference provided a space for those invested in challenging the rise in U.S.-led imperialist aggression on China to meet, strategize, and discuss.
