Comrades,

The chapter has been busy! At the August regular meeting, priority campaign leaders reported on what they’ve been working on, such as establishing subcommittees for the ballot measure campaign and presenting a plan of work for the next year to build a true multicultural working class. We also recently had an election to choose three leads for the International Solidarity Education and Mass Action campaign. Congrats to Mícheál M (International Education Lead), Bert K (External Outreach Lead), and Savannah K (Chapter Mobilization Lead) for getting elected to spearhead this effort!

Also, in case you missed it, we recently put out two explainers on the following topics: Israel-Palestine and the US Police State and Capitalism is An Engine, and We Are the Fuel.

More work from the chapter is underway – read on for more information and ways you can get involved!

In solidarity,

DSA SF Communications Committee
