Participate in Our Annual Chapter Convention this Weekend!

This coming weekend, June 12 & 13 from 12:00-4:00 p.m., we will be holding our annual chapter convention! On Saturday, we’ll discuss and debate priorities for the coming year and consider amendments to our chapter’s bylaws. Priorities resolutions advanced by the membership will go up for a ranked-choice vote between the two days of convention via email, to determine which three resolutions will be adopted. On Sunday, we’ll consider a few resolutions and elect leaders to guide the chapter and represent us at the National Convention in August.

Register for the convention here.

Announcements

New on SFIJ

Hi there, comrades! We think the following pieces of news from the San Francisco Independent Journal (SFIJ) may be of interest to you:

🌹 First, demonstrators successfully blocked an Israeli cargo ship last Friday after picketing in front of six different gates at the Port of Oakland.

🌹 Second, Mayor London Breed announced her budget proposal in a recent press conference with no mention of how her office plans to use Prop I funds, which was passed with a 15-point margin in November.

🌹 Third, the United Educators of San Francisco (UESF) voted to support occupied Palestine amid the escalating crises brought on by Israeli bombings, blockades, and illegal settlements.

🌹 Finally, a series of emails exposed one of San Francisco’s top homelessness chiefs arguing that providing public services ‘attracts unsheltered people’ and that restricting amenities would be necessary to keep the City to be ‘tent free.’

If you have committee work or another story you want to be publicized by a friendly outlet, please submit tips to writing@dsasf.org.
