Queer Socialists Working Group

The Queer Socialists Working Group helps coordinate DSA's work on LGBTQ issues with chapters and the national organization, based on the resolutions and statements passed by the NPC/National Convention. We further DSA's connections to LGBTQ organizations and aide in educating DSA members on these issues and how they relate to democratic socialism.

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!
