Based on the results of our chapter resolution forum and the subsequent Priority Resolution poll, DSA Los Angeles has agreed to submit the following three resolutions to National for discussion at the DSA Convention this August:
Universal Healthcare & Single Payer Initiatives
Anti-Imperialism, domestic & international
Right to Housing
These resolutions, along with those submitted by other chapters will be discussed at the national convention this August, and the top five will be selected as the priorities for the National organization to focus national resources and efforts for the next two years. As a local chapter, DSA Los Angeles will not be restricted in the work we do locally.
