    End-of-year General Meeting and Fundraiser

    William Way Ballroom

    At General Meetings we get together to hear reports from projects and committees, set local policy and work priorities, and to debate and vote on resolutions. The assembled membership is the ultimate decision-making body of the local, so participation is crucial.

    At the December General Meeting, we will be looking back on the year and all we worked on as a chapter in 2019, and looking forward to the year to come. After wrapping up business during the meeting, we'll celebrate with food, drinks, and music during our end-of-year fundraiser. 

    General Meeting Agenda

    Timeline: 

    • Deadline for General Meeting business submissions: 11/23
    • General Meeting Agenda published: 11/30
    • Amendments due: 12/4
    • Final General Meeting Agenda published: 12/9

    Please bring a fully charged phone if you can! We'll be using miniVAN, which you can download as an app for free! 

    Please RSVP via the link at the bottom of the page to help our hosts prepare for the correct number of canvassers!

    Back in February, our chapter voted overwhelmingly to endorse Bernie Sanders because he is the only candidate in the race who will fight for our values.

    Weeknight canvasses are an easy, but important way to have face-to-face conversations with working people about the shortcomings of our capitalist system and how Bernie is the ONLY candidate offering solutions that address the needs of the working class.

    Marx Reading Group: Karl Kautsky

    Chapterhouse Cafe

    Karl Kautsky is arguably the grandfather of democratic socialism. He walked a middle course between the reformist strands of German social democracy and the Soviet revolutionary model. In this session, we’ll read the entirety of his influential The Road to Power (1909), debating the relevance of his example for contemporary politics.

    Bernie Sanders Debate Watch Party

    Parish Room, First Unitarian Church

    Cheer on Bernie Sanders as he stands for democratic socialism in the sixth Democratic Primary Debate!

    In February, Philly DSA voted overwhelmingly to endorse Bernie Sanders, the only democratic socialist in the Presidential race and the most popular politician in the country. People believe in Bernie Sanders because he fights for universal programs that will make material improvements in people’s lives. He’s the only candidate who will truly fight for Medicare for All, he’s committed to stopping US imperialism, and he has the most ambitious plan for a Green New Deal to fight climate change while empowering workers and unions.

    Join Philly DSA as we watch Bernie Sanders take a stand for our values and against the corporate, capitalist hegemony that dominates the Democratic Party and learn how you can get involved in our campaigning for Sanders.
