50th Anniversary

A three year project of the DSA Fund, marking the 50th anniversaries of Michael Harrington's The Other America, the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, and the War on Poverty signed in to law by Lyndon Johnson. The project goal is to counteract widespread public misunderstanding regarding both poverty's cause and possible solutions, in order to promote broader class awareness and strengthen the social commitment to eliminating poverty in the United States.

Throughout 2012 DSA chapters organized public educational events about poverty. In 2013, chapters will mobilize for an August 50th anniversary March on Washington, as well as hold educational events throughout the year and work against the austerity agenda at the local, state and national level.

To find an event near you, check with your local DSA chapter. To find out more about organizing for the March in August, contact toa (a) dsausa.org. DSA members may request a full organizing guide from the national office.

Spring Democratic Left Discussion

April 20, 2015 · 5 rsvps
conference call - RSVP for call-in information

If you're not active in a DSA local chapter, this is your chance to discuss democratic socialism and specifically, the articles in the spring issue of Democratic Left magazine, with other members. The conference call will be moderated by a member of the DSA National Political Committee, but the purpose of the call is for member to member communication. This is not an overview of DSA politics and what DSA is doing nationally.
