Labor Picnic

Organizing in the workplace is a crucial avenue for socialists to build power. However, if your workplace doesn’t have a union, or if your union is between active campaigns, it can be difficult to know how to start. Labor Circles bring workers in similar industries together so they can share notes, build solidarity, and start thinking long term about the changes they’d like to see in their workplaces. Join us for a picnic this Saturday, November 6 at 2:00 p.m. to meet other DSA members and interested parties who work in the same fields as you! RSVP here.

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 with any questions.

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, who is a District Leader for AD 19 – she can get you started on text-banking voters!
