Whereas, Sanders has proven through his campaign, based on small-donor dollars and mass mobilization of supporters, that he is the only candidate capable of not only beating President Trump in a general election but of reorganizing politics around the needs and demands of the many and not the greed and interests of the monied few; and,
Whereas, Sanders can only win this election if millions of working-class voters are mobilized to vote and organized beyond the ballot box;
Therefore be it resolved, that Philly DSA and its members pledge to fulfill our promise of knocking 200,000 doors before Pennsylvania’s April 28th 2020 primary election; and,
Be it further resolved, that Philly DSA members pledge to individually commit to any combination of the following:
Be it further resolved, that Philly DSA will encourage members to travel to nearby counties and states to assist in Bernie organizing where needed and to communicate and coordinate with other DSA chapters and members doing Bernie primary work; and,
Be it finally resolved, that Philly DSA will encourage Democratic Socialist elected officials and other progressives in Pennsylvania to publicly endorse Sanders in the Democratic Primary.
