To bring about a just world, the fight for socialism is just as vital here in San Francisco as it is anywhere else in the world. This past week, DSA SF took action against international and local injustices – last Friday, DSA folks organized and marched with various human rights organizations in honor of International Human Rights Day and to protest a U.S.-led Summit for Democracy that included Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte and Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, leaders of fascist regimes funded by the U.S. war machine.
After we shouted down continued U.S. hypocrisy on the world stage, we got together to make sure that our fellow comrades here in San Francisco remain housed. Dean Preston and DSA’s Electoral Board organized an Eviction-Free Zone gathering to inform tenants of their legal rights to fight back against landlords. Dean and various DSA leaders spoke about the importance of eviction protections in a historic housing crisis.
As we head into 2022, we’ll look to do more of the same together – strengthening our sense of community here in the Bay while building towards a world that puts people first. Build it with us!

Interested in East Bay Socialist Housing Organizers Project (SHOP) Training?
|East Bay DSA is holding a training program called Socialist Housing Organizers Project (SHOP) along with Tenant and Neighborhood Councils (TANC), an autonomous tenants union. The SHOP program trains DSA members to become tenant organizers and get plugged in to organizing in their own buildings or supporting others in doing so. The Tenant Solidarity committee hopes to get a group of DSA SF members to go through the trainings to develop tenant organizing skills. The committee also hopes to explore the possibility of expanding SHOP into a cross-chapter collaboration that can connect people with TANC’s SF chapter. If you are interested in participating in a future training, please sign up via this form. Email email@example.com with any questions.|
Volunteer for Single-Payer Healthcare Campaign
|National Nurses United and the California Nurses Association have been ramping up the CalCare campaign as the bill for California state-level single-payer will return in January. They are focusing on priority districts, including AD 17 and AD 19 in San Francisco. For those areas, they are looking for District Leaders to lead locally. They’ll provide extensive training and support to these leaders. If you are interested, you can sign up here. If you want to participate in the campaign but not be a District Leader, please reach out to DSA SF member Ellen Y (by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org), who is a District Leader for AD 19 – she can get you started on text-banking voters!|
