DSA In The News

"DSA In The News" is a roundup of recent media articles featuring DSA. It is based on links from Chicago DSA's New Ground.

  • DSA's massive growth in recent months continues to make headlines. This includes stories at Reuters and The Hill, as well as a video at Now This. It can't hurt, either, that Michael Moore urged others to follow him in joining DSA.

  • The real action is happening at the local level, as media outlets across the nation will tell you. From news of a new chapter in the Long Beach Post, to coverage of the first meeting of a new YDS chapter at the Georgetown Voice, to notes on new and renewed chapters in Idaho and Texas, there's plenty of hopeful signs that DSA may actually beat the Democrats to implementing a 50-state strategy.

  • Speaking of Democrats, DSA got a few shout-outs for its response to Tom Perez's recent election as DNC chair. The Washington Post counted DSA members among those chanting “Money out of politics!” in response to the rejection of language that would have banned corporate donations to the DNC. Meanwhile, Vox included DSA as one of the organizations that may be able to use Perez's election as an opening for independent left politics.

  • DSA members have been using town halls to push for single-payer while defending the gains made under Obamacare. Hoodline noted that DSA came out to Rep. Barbara Lee's townhall in Oakland to promote the proposal for single-payer in California. The Badger Herald cites DSAer Ted Gramski calling for single-payer healthcare at a Madison, WI townhall which Republican Sen. Ron Johnson didn't even bother attending. And in Missoula, MI, the Missoulian lists DSA among the groups sponsoring a townhall held to defend the gains of the ACA.
