Kathy Martino is a member of Sustaining All Life. She has been an anti-war activist, working class organizer, and past participant in leftist organizations. She has since been interested in determining why the great socialist revolutions failed in the long run and why progressive movements have often stalled and their gains reversed. After learning the tools of Re-evaluation Counseling, she believes they can be key in achieving the goals of this Left Forum in building unity and developing a winning strategy on the left, and are the key to making permanent gains in society.
