Upcoming Events with NACLA, and a Call for Pitches!


Nicaragua in Crisis: A Forum with Dan LaBotz

Co-sponsored with the Marxist Education Project and Haymarket Books

When: Wednesday, June 13, 7:30PM - 9:30PM

Where: New Perspectives Theatre, 456-458 West 37th Street, New York, NY

Since late April the Nicaraguan Sandinista government of President Daniel Ortega has been challenged first by a popular uprising in which dozens were killed by the government and then by mass demonstrations demanding peace and justice. Now the Catholic Church is attempting to mediate between the Ortega government and the movement, but so far without success. What is the source of Nicaragua’s crisis today? And what are the roots of the problem in the experience of the last forty years? How does it affect Nicaraguan immigrants to the United States? What stand should progressive Americans take on the Nicaraguan crisis?

Tickets required, though nobody will be turned away for lack of funds. Click here for more information!

We are currently accepting pitches for our upcoming issue, to be released in December 2018, “Women Rising in the Americas,” which will focus on feminism, gender, and LGBTQ movements and politics! Send us a brief (250 word) pitch that captures the tone of the article you’d like to write for us by June 15, 2018, to Managing Editor Laura Weiss, lweiss@nacla.org. We are interested in articles that examine a specific, narrowly defined topic, and are written in a lively, accessible manner. We give preference to articles that are based on original research and interviews. Please include a link to your previous published work, if possible. We suggest you review our online content and previous issues of the NACLA Report as well as our writers’ guide before you send your pitch. If accepted, articles will be due in late August, 2018.
