DSA Homelessness Working Group 9/23 Sock Distro
The Homelessness Working Group sent out teams to different parts of the city to hand out socks and other supplies. Teams covered six different areas, taking the time at each area to note conditions in each area like the increase in anti-homeless planters on sidewalks in different parts of the city, the use of anti-homeless sprinklers, and changes in where people are staying after sweeps by the city. HWG also continued to build relationships with unhoused folks they’ve encountered in the past, and got a hopeful update about one person getting housing after 16 years on the street.
The full reportback for the 9/23 Sock Distro is available on Slack in the #homelessness channel. If you’d like to get involved, check out the Slack channel or reach out directly to email@example.com.
Transit Labor Walking Tour on 9/25
The Transit Labor Walking Tour was a big success! The event, put on jointly by the Labor and Ecosocialist committees, covered several historic sites along the SF waterfront. It was a great time, and a chance to get in touch with San Francisco’s labor organizing roots. It was also a helpful outreach tool, piquing the interest of some people who were completely new to DSA and pushing some others to get more involved.
Another labor walking tour may be in the works in the future, so make sure to check out the #labor and #ecosocialism Slack channels for updates!
Behind the Scenes
The Chapter Coordination Committee (CCC) regularly rotates duties among chapter members. This allows us to train new members in key duties that help keep the chapter running like organizing chapter meetings, keeping records updated, office cleanup, updating the DSA SF website and newsletter, etc. Members can view current CCC rotations.
