Below are the resolutions that have been submitted for approval at the 2015 DSA Convention.

Resolution to Leave the Socialist International

Resolution on Internet Democracy

Resolution on Public Banks

Resolution on Environmental Justice

The Resolutions Committee plans to have all amendments to the strategy document and all resolutions available on the website by "end of business" Friday, November 6th.  The committee is working with people and chapters that propose resolutions and amendments to consolidate them where possible and work out any language issues (clarity, grammar, etc.).  Resolutions, because they are free-standing, will be posted to the website as soon as they are in final form. Check periodically to see what is there. We will accept amendments to the above resolutions (not to strategy amendments) until November 9th. Please send them to resolutions(at)dsausa.org.

The amended strategy document will not be posted until late November 6th, because all amendments must be considered in relationship to one another.  The committee will post an omnibus amended strategy document that includes amendments that the committee considers noncontroversial and not in need of discussion.  Amendments that the committee thinks need discussion will be addressed individually, separate from the omnibus amended strategy document. At the convention, delegates may vote to remove items from the omnibus strategy document for discussion, but the committee discourages doing so in order that delegates can focus their attention on major amendments.

Committee members thank those who are submitting resolutions and amendments for their engagement.  We appreciate your patience as we work through submissions.

M4A Chapter Activist Training Call: How to Pass a Medicare for All City Council Resolution

June 30, 2018

In March, Philadelphia DSA members showed up in droves with healthcare workers, community members, and elected leaders to pass a Philadelphia city-wide resolution supporting the Medicare for All Act of 2017 and affirming universal access to healthcare as a human right. This victory showed that in a city where the poverty rate is over 26%, city council leaders learned where to stand when it comes to universal healthcare. To move a national campaign to win Medicare for All, we need to build support from a broad range of cities and municipalities across the country. With some research, planning, and lobbying, you could work with city council members to pass a resolution of support in your city too!
