Socialist Strategy Conference

Join DSAers from around the country in a "virtual conference" May 2-3, 2015.

Prior to the conference, DSA local chapters will hold meetings to discuss the state of global capitalism and the movement against it, and what therefore should be the role of our socialist organization in that movement.

The weekend of the conference, we will have regional meetings where each meeting "calls" in via video conference to a national discussion about an updated statement of DSA's analysis and role in the coming period.

After the conference, DSA local chapters will again hold meetings to discuss the updated document and provide feedback.

Finally, at our national convention in November 2015, we hope to pass a final strategy document outlining our organizational strategy.
