National Political Committee newsletter — 85,000 members strong

The last month has been a “weeks where decades happen” kind of time for all of us. DSA members came together to demand democracy as the General Election was drawn out and cries of “count every vote” rang clear. Although establishment Democrats belittle our movement for socialism, we know that the vision we have for…

November Dispatch — take action NOW to demand democracy

The people have spoken. Yet Trump is afraid of the results. Since Tuesday night, his mobs in Detroit have chanted “stop the count,” and it has now spread to other blue cities like Phoenix and Philadelphia. He’s filed lawsuits and bragged about taking this to his Supreme Court. We must demand democracy. This Saturday 11/7…

Now, as always, we have to keep fighting for democracy at every level of society —…

September Dispatch — Organizing is Personal

I’m going to get a little personal with this Dispatch, please forgive me. I’m in mourning. I grew up bushwhacking around the Pacific Northwest, off-trail hiking even as a child. I saw glorious alpine lakes and ancient trees, and to get there my family visited struggling small towns decimated by the endless corporate appetite for…

August National Political Committee newsletter — Courage and anger

As the pandemic continues to threaten our livelihoods, there has been no meaningful action by state and federal elected officials to protect us. Congress continues to show its loyalty to the ruling class by recessing until early September without any form of relief for the working class. $1200 was not enough in March: we deserve…

August Dispatch: Celebrate our victories and keep fighting

We can win. Friday, July 10 the United Teachers of Los Angeles released a poll of their membership showing 83% wanted full distance learning as the school year starts. Monday, July 13 the school district announced it would be so. Chicago was even faster. This past Tuesday, the Chicago Teachers Union called for a strike…
