Door Knock with the Dean Team

Join us from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. this Saturday, April 13th at Raymond Kimbell Playground (Steiner and Geary) and help re-elect the supervisor money can’t buy. DSA SF and Dean—along with our friends, neighbors, and coalition partners—have taken on real estate developers, landlords, and a rising conservative right in San Francisco, and won historic working-class victories that were accomplished through on-the-ground, grassroots organizing supported by a strong Socialist in office. And we know it’s working because across the country, a rising right wing backed by billionaire money has been trying to push socialist and progressive representatives like Dean out of City Hall, and we can’t let them buy this election! SHOW UP FOR THIS! We need representatives like Dean in office so he can keep fighting for the people and not the powerful.

Labor Night School: The US Labor Movement and the Socialist Role

Join us for our Labor Night School on Wednesday, April 17th from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at 1916 McAllister! In this discussion based session, we’ll be learning about the history of US labor actions and the socialist role as we work to better understand capitalism, socialism, and collective liberation. We’ll look at several short readings on major events in the US labor movement and the role that socialism has played, and then have a collective, critical discussion. This is the second session of our Labor Night School, but each session is independent so feel free to join us for the first time for this event.

Kickball(s) for Abortion Acce$$

Kickball(s) for Abortion Access on May 18th ⚽

Connect with your neighbors on Saturday, May 18th at 1:00 p.m. while raising money for abortion access! 💚

San Franciscans don’t need to be reminded that the struggle for bodily autonomy is universal.🏳️‍⚧️ 🏳️‍🌈Or, that when someone is denied an abortion it’s more than a hardship for the individual and their family—it’s a test of our community and our commitment to basic human rights. So, let’s put our money where our mouths have been, are, and always will be: BALLS DEEP FOR ABORTION! ⚽

We’ll have a friendly fundraising competition, kickball tournament, snack bar, prizes & more! 100% of proceeds will be donated to Texas grassroots abortion access orgs Frontera Fund and Buckle Bunnies (recommended by our comrades at DSA Austin).

For more information about how to get involved, RSVP below!

The Chapter Coordination Committee (CCC) regularly rotates duties among chapter members.
