A specter is haunting New England, the specter of the 2019 New England Democratic Socialists of America Conference #NEDSA2019! Save the dates, March 22nd through 24th in Boston!
We all have different expertise, but as socialists, we all care about the same fundamentals. Learn and debate with your DSA comrades from Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
Come find out more about the different ways socialism can improve all aspects of our society, like: Eco-socialism, socialist-feminism, anti-racism, immigrant rights, medicare for all, mutual aid, housing rights, prison abolition, anti-fascism 101, labor solidarity, socialists in elections, college debt abolition, and more!
This is an opportunity to learn new skills that will help you organize your local chapters toward achieving local socialist goals. There will be trainings on grassroots fundraising, strategic campaign planning, how to do political education, harassment and grievance intake and investigation, and Robert’s Rules of Order, how to write resolutions, the timeline and other convention matters.
**DSA Debates and Discussions**
The New England DSA Conference will be the regional pre-convention for the National DSA Convention in the Summer. The regional conferences are the beginning of the participatory pre-convention process. In order for all DSA members to have equal access to information, all regional conferences will be debating similar topics throughout the organization.
It doesn’t matter if you’re an old hat, a young activist, or a college student just coming to realize the injustices of capitalism and our society. What is important is that we show solidarity by educating ourselves and others on what it means to be a socialist and knowing what making our vision for the future real will mean.
