The Socialist Equality Party is a political party of and for the working class. The SEP seeks not to reform capitalism, but to create a socialist, democratic and egalitarian society through the establishment of a workers’ government and the revolutionary transformation of world economy. They seek to unify workers in the United States and internationally in the common struggle for socialism, that is — for equality and the rational and democratic utilization of the wealth of the planet.
The Socialist Equality Party (US) is in political solidarity with the International Committee of the Fourth International. The ICFI is the leadership of the world socialist movement, the Fourth International, founded by Leon Trotsky in 1938. The ICFI publishes the World Socialist Web Site.
The program of the Socialist Equality Party expresses the interests of the working class, the leading and decisive international revolutionary social force in modern capitalist society. The central task of the SEP is to win the support of American workers for the program of international socialism. The SEP strives, on the basis of this program, to unify and mobilize the working class for the conquest of political power and the establishment of a workers’ state in the United States. It will create, thereby, the objective preconditions for the development of a genuinely democratic, egalitarian and socialist society. These objectives can be realized only within the framework of an international strategy, the goal of which is the global unification of the workers of all countries and the creation of a United Socialist States of the World.
