Event Information

Why do socialists engage in electoral campaigns? How do we approach electoral work given the near-term direction of the Democratic party? How do we achieve our policy agenda as a small, but powerful, minority in federal politics?

Please join DSA’s National Political Committee in conversation with our three new Nationally-endorsed candidates for Congress: Mckayla Wilkes (MD-05)Samelys Lopez (NY-15) and Rebecca Parson (WA-06). We will discuss what the future of the electoral left should look like. We will ask our candidates why they chose to run as socialists, how their electoral work has changed in a COVID-19 world, and how YOU can be a part of the effort to get these three groundbreaking women elected.
