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

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com), who is a District Leader for AD 19 – she can get you started on text-banking voters!
