Peter Sachs Collopy

I have not been active in DSA for nearly two years. Prior to that, however, I served on the Elections Coordinating Committee for the 2017 DSA-LA Steering Committee election and facilitated meetings for the Sanctuary City Working Group (now the Immigration Justice Committee). Before I moved to to LA in 2015, I facilitated dozens of meetings and several elections for Mariposa Food Co-op in Philadelphia, and developed procedures and software for ranked choice voting that were later also adopted by the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance and the US Federation of Worker Co-ops. Elections and meeting facilitation are the organizing practices I have the most experience with, so this may be the right occasion for me to step up again in DSA-LA.
