Demand Senate support for Bernie Sanders’ NDAA amendment to stop US support for the Saudi War in Yemen

United States support of the violence in Yemen must end. Bernie Sanders is sponsoring a Senate amendment to the NDAA to match the amendment passed in the House to stop US support for the Saudi War and the humanitarian disaster in Yemen. Take a few minutes to send an e-mail to California Senators Dianne Feinstein and Alex Padilla asking them to co-sponsor Bernie’s amendment to the NDAA. You can also tweet them about Bernie’s NDAA amendment using the example tweet below: 

Example tweet: .@SenFeinstein @AlexPadilla4CA can we count on you to co-sponsor @BernieSanders Yemen amendment to the NDAA? Every 75 sec, a Yemeni child is expected to die from man-made causes. Supporting this can prevent thousands of Yemenis from dying. #YemenCantWait #NDAA

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 on 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.

In Case You Missed It

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.
