Fw: Re: [DC-DSA] IMPORTANT: No regular meeting in August! Attend SlutWalk instead...

Has either the DSA membership or the local DSA steering committee actually voted not to have a regualr meeting in August?
I don't think so.  I think it might be a good idea to cancel the regular DSA meeting, but I don't think this was officially agreed to.  I get the feeling that supporters of the "Slutwalk" event -- which I support -- are kind of hijacking DSA's agenda for purposes that the entire organization hasn't officially agreed to.
Can we have a vote of the steering committe, at least, before we agree that the regular DSA membership meeting is cancelled?

Ben - I'm not saying this is a bad decision, but when was it actually decided that we wouldn't have a regualr DSA meeting in August?
I believe -- unless my memory is going completely --  that at the July DSA monthly meeting, you and Dave Richardson and I all were committed to having a regular monthly meeting in August.
That might have been a bad decision, and maybe we should revise it. 
But I think that was the decision.  I'm willing to vote to reverse that decision - but this announcement seems to me to be going against what the steering committee had decided, and without any vote.

Dear all,
It was great seeing many of you at our last Socialist salon the other week - we had record attendance of over 20 people!  We had a great discussion on feminism in general, and the "Slutwalk" phenomenon in particular.  For more information on Slutwalk, read these articles:
A Slutwalk is actually taking place in DC on Saturday, August 13th.  Please join us as we march against rape culture and for feminism!  Whether you're a woman or a man, it's important for us to stand against rape.  Rape is NEVER ok, no matter what a woman is wearing.
The march will start at Lafayette Park behind the White House at 12 PM.  We will meet at a predetermined location to march together behind our new union-made banner.  Contact me at benkreider[at] if you plan to come.
In solidarity,
