The US Social Forum started on Tuesday June 22, 2010 in Detroit. The start of the event began with arrivals of caravans and a poor people's march, and an opening "We have a dream" protest march and rally. Thousands attended and marched in the sunshine with music, signs, puppets, and high spirits, calling for social justice.

People drove for days, weeks, and months to attend the forum, eager to listen to speakers, attend workshops and network with people from across the nation.
