It’s an election year, and that means it’s time to brush up on how to get out there and get signatures to support our ballot measures! This week, the Electoral Board is holding two training events on the basics of canvassing, including how to gather signatures and how to train your fellow comrades to do the same! Winning socialism at the polls takes months of on-the-ground work at every step of the process, and this is step one. There will be one session this Thursday, February 10 at 6:30 p.m. and one session on Saturday, February 12 at 1:00 p.m., both in-person at the DSA SF office on 1916 McAllister StreetYou can use the form linked here to register for either one – hope to see you there!

In Case You Missed It

Organize a Healthcare Labor Circle with us!

Help us organize a healthcare labor circle! We are hoping to connect with members who work in healthcare in San Francisco. Our first step would be to organize an informal meet and greet among members to discuss where people work, what issues they face, and what a healthcare labor circle might look like. If you are interested in getting involved in this process please send an email to

Phone bank for tenants’ rights!

The Daybreak PAC is hosting weekly phone banks every Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. where we call District 5 tenants. It’s a great chance for DSA members to help protect tenants from eviction and assist folks in applying for rent relief!
