The August chapter meeting is tomorrow night!
Our August chapter meeting is tomorrow night, August 10 at 6:45 p.m. at the PSL office on 2969 Mission St! We’ll be getting together to talk chapter business, get updates from our priority campaigns, and discuss a few things we’ll need to vote on as a chapter. We’ll be discussing possible support of a ballot measure campaign to consolidate elections to boost voter turnout, and how we can better and more consistently define what an eligible voter is in DSA SF – can’t work on improving democracy outside unless we have it ironed out within the chapter!
We’ll also hear about a proposal to harness the energy around the Empty Homes Tax campaign to strengthen tenant organizing efforts. The Empty Homes Tax campaign has been a huge source of strength for the chapter this year – we’ll hear about how we can use this network of San Franciscans concerned about housing issues and turn that energy into a slumlord’s nightmare.
The meeting will be accessible both in person and on Zoom, and you can register for the Zoom meeting using the link below.
