And to make sure you get our newsletters in your inbox, sign up here! Each one features action alerts, upcoming events, political education, and more.

From Our Co-Chairs — Committed to Ending the Genocide

DSA members across the country are helping to lead the way on the wave of “Uncommitted” votes that have Joe Biden and the Democratic Party shaking in their boots. We’re sending a message: stop the genocide against Gaza now or whatever happens in November is your fault, Joe.

As a result of a campaign that spun up over the course of a mere three weeks, Michigan voters cast 100k “Uncommitted” votes. Last night, Super Tuesday elections saw a quarter of a million voters, including 20% of Minnesota Democrats, voting “Uncommitted,” and we’ve still got Washington, Wisconsin, and more on the way as momentum continues to grow. 

Tonight, we’ll be joined on our monthly Fireside Chat by DSA members from Detroit about what the ground game for the Listen to Michigan campaign looked like from the inside and what comes next, as well as DSA members from Seattle about how they’re building their Uncommitted campaign on top of the infrastructure of their recent massive Raise the Wage Renton win. Join us!

We also need you to get involved! This is an all-hands-on-deck moment, and a momentous one. Please jump in if you can!

Honored as always to be in this struggle with you,

DSA Co-Chairs Ashik Siddique and Megan Romer

RSVP for National Political Education Committee Educators Conference Sunday 3/24

At our first conference of the year, the National Political Education Committee will bring together political educators from around the country to share and learn from comrades about local and national organizing efforts. Chapters and national working groups are invited to send up to two representatives each. Anyone else is welcome to attend as a viewer.

In this conference, we’ll examine political education’s role in building working class power; share NPEC resources and an application for NPEC’s 2024-2025 term; connect you with a national network of political educators from different chapters in and out of your region; and open the discussion to hear from you about your chapter’s needs as we prepare for NPEC’s next term.

NPEC conferences are terrific opportunities to further your chapter’s political education efforts through new pedagogical approaches and inter-regional collaboration. RSVP today to reserve your spot!
