We’re back with some great news: the guest speaker for our December General Meeting is none other than award-winning journalist and former Bernie Sanders speechwriter David Sirota!
Editor’s note: The Philly DSA Bulletin Team would like to sincerely thank cofounder / editor / writer / proofreader / NationBuilder admin / right midfielder / all-around good guy Jeremy Wheatley, who I think has clicked “Send” on every single Bulletin since early 2018, as he steps down to spend more time with his wife and two kids. Writing these will be a lot less fun without you.
Happy belated Thanksgiving! We took a week off, and hope you didn’t miss your biweekly bulletin too much. We’re back with some great news: the guest speaker for our December General Meeting is none other than award-winning journalist and former Bernie Sanders speechwriter David Sirota!
Since the 2020 primary, Sirota has transformed his popular “BERN Notice” campaign newsletter into a one-of-a-kind Substack publication, The Daily Poster. The Daily Poster, unlike most Substacks, isn’t a blog or personal column (or... Bulletin); it’s a fledgling investigative journalism project with multiple writers and contributors that aims to uncover the would-be secrets of the corporate elite by, as Sirota is fond of saying on Twitter, reading SEC documents and watching C-SPAN videos.
Here are a few of the stories the Poster has broken over the past month alone:
RSVP to our upcoming GM to hear Sirota talk Bernie, Biden, Trump, and the future of journalism.
Next General Meeting Scheduled for Sunday December 20
It’s the December General Meeting & Holiday Fundraiser! We'll be voting on resolutions submitted by members, electing a new Member Engagement committee chair, and raising funds for the local.
We'll be revisiting last year's very successful T-shirt design contest, where you vote with your dollars. Last year, after all the legal votes were counted, we all went home with the iconic (now vintage) “Bernie Grandpa” t-shirt. Who will win this year?
IT COULD STILL BE YOU!
Submit by December 6, and come to the meeting on December 20 — the design that gets the most donations will be made into a limited-run Philly DSA shirt!
