I am in support of DSA-LA forming the Eastside/SGV branch that would open the opportunity for communities of colors to organize in the convenience of their neighborhoods. After organizing in the Bernie 2020 campaign, I have seen new organizers activate their neighbors to embrace democratic socialism and take political action. Like many new members, I believe DSA LA should provide a safe space for minorities who have difficulties using public transportation or lack access due to their geographical location to commute to the City of Los Angeles. While recruitment is developing rapidly, a new branch on the Eastside of LA will allow local activist to work on issues that are unique to their needs. Vote YES on the DSA-LA Eastside and SGV branch!!
