Communist Party USA

Founded in 1919, the Communist Party USA has championed the struggles for democracy, labor rights, women’s equality, racial justice and peace for ninety years. The Communist Party has an unparalleled history in the progressive movement of the United States, from the struggle against Jim
Crow segregation, the organizing of the industrial unions, from the canneries of California, to the sweatshops of New York City.

The Communist Party upholds both the immediate and long-range interests of the multi-racial, multinational working class and people of our country and builds unity of the entire working class with its allies.

Winning working people's struggles today is the only way to achieve socialism in the future. The heart of our organization is our strategic policy. Our strategy, outlined in our program, "The Road to Socialism USA", defines three stages of struggle between here and socialism, each with distinct but related goals:

  1. Building broad unity in the form of an "all-people's front"—led by the working class, the racially and nationally oppressed, women and youth—to defeat the ultra-right political trend that is controlled by a section of the transnational monopolies and has dominated U.S. politics for more than 30 years.

  2. Building an "anti-monopoly coalition" aimed at radically curbing the power of monopoly as a whole.
  3. Building an alliance led by the working class and its allies with the goal of winning political power and constructing socialism.

Our party claims no monopoly on wisdom or Marxism. We seek to work with all who are genuinely interested in building united mass movements; those on the Left, Center forces, and all who participate in progressive social activism and working-class organization.
