  • JOIN THE PICKET LINE - Strike Solidarity at UCLA

    • Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at 9:00 AM
    • UCLA in Los Angeles, CA

    Join DSA-LA as we show solidarity with the University Professional and Technical Employees (UPTE) as they engage in a day long strike for a fair contract and against austerity measures being taken by the UC Regents!

    The Picket Line shifts start at 757 Westwood Plaza, outside of Ronald Reagan Medical Center (RRMC). You’ll want to check in with the DSA-LA Picket Captain on duty, who will be able to sign you in and direct you to the picket line.

    Parking can be expensive at UCLA, you may want to try some of the structures located near the campus. Your best bets are the Broxton and Weyburn Parking Lots located in the Westwood Village - located at 10920 Weyburn Avenue and 1031 Broxton Avenue respectively.

    Bernie Sanders is expected to speak 12 PM at a rally held at the intersection of Westwood and Le Conte Avenue, a little south of RRMC. If you’re coming to see him speak plan to come early to make sure you find parking and a good vantage point!

  • Our campaign to ensure a socialist is elected to the Los Angeles Unified School Board started strong and fast - over the last several weeks DSA-LA members have run 5 canvasses, 7 phonebanks, mobilized just shy of 100 canvassers to knock on doors, and identified hundreds of votes for Jackie Goldberg. To be sure that she's elected, let's keep talking to voters!

    DSA-LA's campaign to support Jackie Goldberg is about more than just getting her elected though - we talk to infrequent voters, engage with them about protecting public education, work with new coalition partners, and broaden DSA-LA's base and reach. 

    Canvassing is critical, to our work - come join!

  • As part of our ongoing Membership Dues Drive and preparation for our Local Annual Convention, join us at UTLA to reach out to your fellow Central Branch Members to renew their membership!

    DSA-LA is on a roll. We've shown Los Angeles what true solidarity looks like by showing up to over 600 picket shifts during the UTLA strike. Now, we're on track to help elect Jackie Goldberg, a DSA-LA member, to the LAUSD School Board!

    To show that our movement is stronger than ever going into the 2020 presidential elections, DSA-LA is conducting a membership drive. Not only will we ensure comrades are up to date on their dues, but we’ll also re-engage with members in our campaign to build the left in Los Angeles and across the nation.

    We'll also host an important and simple Robert's Rules training so you can be prepared for our Annual Convention on April 14th!

    Pizza and good times provided!

  • DSA 102 - "How We Organize"

    • Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 11:00 AM
    • TBD - RSVP for location

    Organizing people to engage in our own liberatory transformation is the basis of DSA-LA’s work. The purpose of this training is to introduce the basic concepts of organizing, including the organizing framework and building relationships through one-on-one conversation. Participants will be able to describe what distinguishes organizing from activism/turnout as well as apply an organizing conversation with others. At the conclusion of the training, each participant will devise a personal plan of organizing within the chapter, and be assigned a mobilizer who will support them in enacting it. (Recommended: Previously attended DSA-LA 101)
