Workers Vanguard is a Marxist bi-weekly newspaper published by the Spartacist League, a Trotskyist political organization in the United States. It is now affiliated also with the International Communist League, a confederation of similar groups.

WV was first published in October 1971 as a monthly and absorbed Workers' Action,[1] a short-lived bimonthly newspaper published by the nominally independent Committee for a Labor Party.[2]

It was edited for over twenty years by Jan Norden, until he was expelled from the Spartacist League in 1996. Norden went on to found the League for the Fourth International.

It is available online beginning with the issues for 1999. (Prior years of publication, in bound volumes, can be ordered from the Spartacist Publishing Company).
