Join Metro DC Democratic Socialists for an inaugural strategy session on an organization-led effort to elect democratic socialists to Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANCs). ANCs are a hyper-local form of government unique to the District of Columbia. Commissioners represent about 2,000 constituents and provide input to the DC Council on various issues of public concern, including zoning, development, and public safety. Both individuals interested in running as a DSA-affiliated candidate or in devising strategies for successful campaigning are encouraged to attend. We will be discussing lessons learned from our 2018 ANC electoral efforts, how to run, how to win, and the ways we can expand the power and scope of ANCs towards a socialist vision for the future.
