A digital DSA SF flyer with text over a photo of a crowd of Free Palestine protestors and their signs. The text reads, "Palestine Organizing Meeting, Saturday, March 16th, 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. DSA SF Office at 1916 McAllister Street. Come discuss the past few months of actions and strategize with us on what's next for us as socialists in the fight for Palestinian liberation."

Palestine Organizing Meeting

This Saturday (3/16) from 3 p.m.  to 6 p.m. at 1916 McAllister Street, come join DSA SF in reflecting on the past few months of actions and organizing against the ongoing genocide in Gaza, as we think about what’s next for us in the fight for Palestinian liberation. We will discuss our role as socialist allies in this struggle, and consider where to focus our efforts in the continued fight for a free Palestine, from the river to the sea. Food and drink will be provided and masks will be required.

SHOP Training Reportback

The Tenant Organizing Working Group completed our Socialist Housing Organizing Project (SHOP) training to give DSA SF members and interested tenant unionists the theoretical and practical knowledge to go out and organize our buildings as part of the struggle for the future we are fighting for. It was a success, with 12 people attending the trainings, and 7 people completing all three sessions.

We are now in the process of reorganizing the trainings to ensure they are more focused on organizing skills. The theoretical discussions and tenants’ rights trainings that had been part of SHOP will continue to be incorporated elsewhere into the work of the working group. Stay tuned, as we will be hosting more trainings in the future!

The 2024 Convention Planning Subcommittee is tasked with setting the timeline, putting together the agenda, leading the coordination, and handling the logistics for the chapter’s 2024 Annual Convention in June. We are starting early because its a big operation! The cadence will be light at the beginning of the process and naturally pick up the pace as we get closer to the main event!

Comrades with event planning experience are especially encouraged to apply! This is also a great place for newer members who are interested in jumping into the chapter to get involved. You’ll have plenty of support and see how the sausage is made for one of the biggest productions and most important cornerstones of our chapter’s democratic practice.
