I am a member who is a party to a grievance and would like to appeal.

The appeals process is limited to specific grounds contained within Resolution 33, and appeals are decided by DSA’s National Political Committee (NPC).

DSA has just started to process appeals as it first necessary to develop an appeals process that was consistent with Resolution 33 and DSA’s values, with the goal of enabling timely, efficient, accurate, and discreet adjudication of harassment grievances. The appeals process was ratified by the NPC at its April 2019 meeting, and appeals are now being decided. Due to the backlog of pending appeals, a newly submitted appeal could take two to four months to decide following the final ruling from the chapter’s governing body (Steering or Executive Committee).
