Events starting with "DSA-LA" are official events hosted by the Democratic Socialists of America - Los Angeles. Other events are in solidarity with local organizations and movements.
This month's meeting will focus on planning for our upcoming forum on Socialist Feminist organizing and facilitation training for chapter-wide Anti-Oppression workshops.
Most people know how important fixing our healthcare system is but not everyone knows the fight for single payer has already begun — come canvas in Assembly District 54 and make a difference in getting out the word and letting area residents know they're not alone in wanting a better world. All the training you'll need starts at 10am but if you've canvassed with us before we'll be starting door to doors at 11.

Join the Housing and Homelessness and Electoral Politics committees as we sharpen our canvassing skills around the repeal of Costa Hawkins and electing democratic socialist candidates. We'll work on our canvass "rap" and break out into groups for practice. Those who feel comfortable and confident will head out and do some door knocking right after the event!

We're thrilled to announce the first annual DSA-LA Convention will take place on Saturday, April 28 at Friendship Auditorium! The DSA-LA Bylaws establish the Annual Convention as the highest legislative body of the Local — an opportunity for us to come together to reflect on the past year’s work, collectively refine our governing documents, and set priorities for the coming year.
To that end, the Steering Committee is opening a call for Proposed Amendments to our Local Bylaws and Organizational Priorities and Chapter Resolutions in advance of the Convention. Visit our convention page for a complete timeline, guidelines for submission, and future updates.
