Socialist Caucus at the DNC

July 27, 2016
William Way LGBTQ Center in Philadelphia, PA

The Democratic Socialists of America invites all DNC delegates, members and friends to the Socialist Caucus, featuring:

▪ Michael Lighty, Political Director of the National Nurses United and key organizer of The People's Summit; 
Bob Master, Communications Director, Communication Workers of America (Region 2) and Co-Chair New York Working Families Party; and 
▪ Maria Svart, National Director of the Democratic Socialists of America. 

PLEASE NOTE: Cornel West resigned from the Platform Committee this past Tuesday and won’t be attending the Convention in protest against the Sanders’ campaign not filing minority reports, particularly on TPP and the Israeli occupation of the West Bank. We will miss Brother West at the Socialist Caucus, but the other speakers are fantastic (and stay tuned to this page for additional speakers)! Bring your friends and fellow delegates!

This is a free event, but you must register here.
