United StatesThe Havens Center seeks to promote progressive social and political change through engagement with the activist community in Madison and beyond. The principal vehicle for this effort is RadFest/Midwest Social Forum, an annual conference for progressive activists and academics held the weekend after Memorial Day.
The central goal of the conference is to contribute to social movement building by providing organizers, activists, community members, and intellectuals the opportunity to come together to discuss issues, strengthen networks, and devise strategies for progressive social, economic, and political change. In recent years, the conference has grown considerably, becoming an increasingly important annual gathering for progressives from
throughout the upper Midwest and beyond.
