So you are now a member of DSA, but there is no local chapter where you live. You are thinking of starting a local chapter, but you're not quite sure how to do it.
Join us for our latest organizing training for democratic socialist activists: DSA’s (Virtual) Little Red Schoolhouse.
This training is at 3:00pm Eastern (2:00pm Central, 1:00pm Mountain, noon Pacific). Please RSVP.
- Steve Max, DSA Vice Chair and one of the founders of the legendary community organizing school, The Midwest Academy.
In Starting a Local from Scratch you will learn:
- how other locals got started in recent years
- how to find out who is already a member
- the importance of a comrade
- how to recruit new members
- the importance of a mentor
- how to become a recognized organizing committee
- how to become a chartered local
- what works best to bring new people in
- Workshops are free for any DSA member in good standing.
- If you have a computer with microphone, speakers and good internet access, you can join via internet for free.
- If you think you can't do it by computer, contact Theresa Alt email@example.com.
- You can participate in every workshop, since each one builds on the previous ones, or just attend once in a while.
- Workshops will generally be on a Saturday each month from 3:00-4:30pm Eastern Time.
- Participation requires that you register at least 36 hours in advance.
