In Solidarity With Those Arrested In Ferguson

The National Political Committee of the Democratic Socialists of America stands in solidarity with our Honorary Co-Chair Dr. Cornel West, Rev. Osagyefo Uhuru Sekou and the other activists arrested in Ferguson, MO on Aug. 10 demanding justice for Michael Brown. We urge that the charges against them be dismissed; that all police who murder African Americans be charged and tried for their crimes; that police throughout the United States protect, not assault, black youth and black communities; and that structural racism be dismantled in all its aspects. DSA continues to participate actively in #BlackLivesMatter and stands in solidarity with all those fighting for social and racial justice in the United States and around the globe.

Join DSA member and labor historian Susan Hirsch in discussing Union Maids (1976). Nominated for an Academy Award, this documentary follows three Chicago labor organizers (Kate Hyndman, Stella Nowicki, and Sylvia Woods) active beginning in the 1930s. The filmmakers were members of the New American Movement (a precursor of DSA), and the late Vicki Starr (aka Stella Nowicki) was a longtime member of Chicago DSA and the Chicago Women's Liberation Union. It’s available free on YouTube, though sound quality is poor. 8ET/7CT/6MT/5PT.
