2019 DSA National Convention Report
At the 2019 National DSA Convention votes taken by the delegates in attendance largely aligned with the priority decisions made at the 2019 Philadelphia DSA Local Convention. Philly DSA’s local priority campaigns are Electing Bernie Sanders & Socialist Legislators, Winning Medicare for All, Labor Organizing, and A Green New Deal for Philly. The National Convention voted to support each of these, demonstrating the local chapter is in step with the organization as a whole and we can look forward to working with other chapters on shared goals to fight against structural inequality and oppression based on gender, race, and class. A resolution establishing a national political education strategy modeled off of Philly DSA’s Night School was also adopted. This shared sense of purpose across the national organization is promising: by working together on strategic campaigns, locals can strengthen one another and ensure that DSA continues to grow over the next two years until the next convention, strengthening democratic socialist politics across the country and winning power for the working class.
