Upcoming Events

  • DSA-LA 101

    • Sunday, December 16, 2018 at 11:15 AM
    • RSVP for Location

    For members both new to and experienced within DSA-LA, it’s critical for us to understand and discuss the societal transformations we hope to win. This introductory training provides participants the language to talk about root causes of oppression and key crises facing our world.  Additionally, participants will have an interactive opportunity to learn about the foundational values of DSA-LA and how it functions. Everyone who attends, whether this is their first or fifty first DSA activity, will come away a series of next steps for their engagement in the chapter. Recommended materials: pen and paper

  • Predictive Policing Teach-In

    In anticipation of the Inspector General’s audit and potential expansion of racist Predictive Policing, SAR (Suspicious Activity Reporting) and LASER (Los Angeles Strategic Extraction and Restoration) programs, the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition is leading this workshop about data driven policing, specifically looking at the Citywide Nuisance Abatement Program (CNAP) that uses LASER to evict community members and assist gentrification.

    Bringing together members of White People 4 Black Lives, DSA-LA's Housing and Homelessness and Prison Abolition Committees, and NOlympics Working Group, we will share knowledge and build power to mobilize around the dismantling of these programs used to target, displace, contain, and disrupt communities.

  • Communications Committee Meeting

    • Sunday, December 16, 2018 at 4:00 PM

    To uplift our work and protect our organization from co-option and irrelevance, we must develop an informed media strategy. Join the Communications Committee to help us amplify our political message! We will be organizing projects in the following areas:

    Social Media
    Press Outreach
    Graphic Design
    Event Branding/Planning
    Web Development
    News Writing
    & more!

    Note that the first hour of this meeting will be spent on discussion and brainstorming, and the second will be a working session to get people started on a few key projects (social media team, improvements to the website, and the Thorn newsletter – modeled after NYC DSA's newsletter of the same name).
