Donate to the ISR

The International Socialist Review is dedicated to advancing socialist theory and practice in the U.S. and internationally.

We stand in the International Socialist tradition, affirming our commitment to "socialism from below." The ISR seeks to provide a forum for the development of an open and critical Marxist analysis of emergent economic, social, and political questions in an age of global crisis, austerity, and resistance; a Marxism that is able to meet the challenges and opportunities that confront the left and social movements of the 21st century.

The ISR is a project of CERSC, the Center for Economic Research and Social Change. CERSC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to a better understanding of today's world. CERSC also sponsors other projects, such as Haymarket Books,, the annual Socialism Conference, and Mondoweiss.

We welcome contributions from all who are committed to our project and vision. Your contributions will help us continue to improve the ISR -- both its print journal edition and its new web site, which launched in the Summer of 2013.

We encourage all who support the ISR's mission to make a financial contribution to CERSC. You can contribute using this secure donation form. Thank you for helping our project continue and to become even stronger.
