Ferguson Convergence

Friday, October 10, 2014 at 10:00 AM · 5 rsvps

Join us in Ferguson the October 10th Weekend

Organizers in St. Louis are calling for a national mobilization in Ferguson in less than two weeks to keep up national momentum and keep the pressure on the governor and county prosecutor. Together, we can build the movement against both capitalism and the so-called “colorblind” system of racial injustice we call white supremacy.

By participating as a visible member of DSA, you help amplify a message that recognizes the distinct but intertwined roles of capitalism and white supremacy in the prison industrial complex and the epidemic of police violence.  As democratic socialists we know that we must resist and end this system of social control.

To make a difference, we need all hands on deck because as Frederick Douglass taught us, “power concedes nothing without a demand.”

RSVP below and DSAer Femi Agbabiaka will reach out to coordinate meeting up with you. We will also connect you with the Ferguson organizers if you need help carpooling or finding a place to stay for the weekend.
