Emergency Post-Charlottesville DSA Organizing Guide

DSANoKKKSignPREVIEW.jpg

For all DSA members and chapters, here is our post-Charlottesville organizing guide. There are some great tips here about running meetings, doing outreach, and finding concrete ways to help. You can download the guide here.

We also have a great DSA anti-fascist, anti-hate sign available here. You can print this out for rallies in your area, or to put in your window.

We cannot allow the organized neo-Nazi movement to use the Charlottesville tragedy to consolidate and expand their violent offensive against people of color and against the left.

Therefore, a three pronged strategy should structure our work.

  1. Defend our communities and institutions from neo-fascist violence.

  2. Continue to organize a grassroots multi-racial working class movement fighting for visionary, transformative reforms like Medicare for all.

  3. Fight the battle of ideas - fight racism and anti-Semitism with socialism, not with neoliberalism.

People everywhere will be looking to groups like DSA for a community of support and ways to take action, so we recommend you organize general interest DSA meetings to recruit folks for near and long term action.

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.
