  • Medicare 4 ALL Workgroup Weekly Meeting | #M4A

    Online event

    Democratic Socialists are fighting to make single-payer Medicare for All healthcare a reality. JOIN US Help us fight to replace our fractured and broken health system with a unified Medicare for All system. In order to get our politicians to buck their billionaire donors and side with the majority, we have to threaten them with a mass political movement. But the movement we need cannot be built overnight. That’s why we need each and every person to get involved. Winning Medicare for All will mean establishing a piece of real democratic socialism and building a broader working-class movement to take on the elite and the billionaire class. JOIN US. We are meeting each Sunday at 5pm via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZUlde2rqjMrGNz1XuSVmrTiMB_aPZL6gGCR Passcode: mdcdsa ---------------------------------- This event is open to both DSA Members and supporters.

  • Socialist Feminist Movie Night & Discussion: LITTLE WHITE LIE

    Comrades, we will be taking a break from our monthly organizing meeting, and instead watch the documentary "Little White Lie" by filmmaker Lacey Schwartz. Schwartz grew up in an upper middle class Jewish family in upstate New York and was raised to understand her identity as a white Jewish woman. However, when she applies to Georgetown University and is accepted as a Black student, she begins to question her identity. This documentary takes us through Lacey's journey as she uncovers family secrets, confronts their view of her, and ultimately comes to an understanding of who she truly is. Watch the trailer here: https://youtu.be/qxHLpgYwcVY **We will update this event with the Zoom link by December 1.** This movie runs approx. 1 hour and will be followed by a facilitated discussion. PLEASE RSVP ON ACTION NETWORK: https://actionnetwork.org/events/mdc-dsa-socialist-feminist-caucus-business-meeting-monthly-2?source=direct_link& Please note: This event is open to all DSA members and supporters. The Socialist Feminist Caucus is committed to political education and coalition building in the DC metro region and beyond. We are expanding upon our radical origins to build the collective power of workers for the common good. We envision a world that is free from all forms of sexism, racism, ableism, ageism, capitalism, imperialism, xenophobia, and patriarchal constructs. ---------------------------------- Are you a DSA member and on Slack?
