Aligned with our commitment to “exist along organizational lines developed and led by members,” the DSA-LA Bylaws empower groups of 25 members to propose internal and external initiatives for consideration by the membership— including formation of Local Subgroups. This month, 25 DSA-LA organizers in good standing are proposing the formation of a Campaign-Based Working Group called Food For Solidarity.
Requirements for Campaign-Based Working Groups in DSA-LA are outlined in Art. V(4) of the Bylaws, and the proposed Food For Solidarity Platform, and detailed project description can be found here in full.
July 14 Chapter Meeting: Food for Solidarity organizers present platform and vision for Working Group. Following presentation, there will be time for questions, answers, and political debate.
July 15 - July 22: Open call for member statements for or against the proposed Food for Solidarity Working Group. Statements will be posted publicly on this blog on a rolling basis (after a brief review for relevance and civility—these are going up on the internet) for all members to read in advance of the chapter-wide vote.
July 23 - July 30: The entire chapter votes electronically on the proposal to approve the Food for Solidarity Working Group.
