As the newly formed Portland chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, we seek to build progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly democratic socialist presence in the region. Our chapter is made up of both long-time activists and people completely new to socialism or activism. We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism, racial equality and non-oppressive relationships.
The agenda is pending exec committee meeting, but in the works already were proposals from working groups, statewide conference planning, proposed bylaws changes to include working groups in exec committee, and continuing education around DSA. Final proposed agenda will be posted.
Childcare will be provided. Please contact Ben on slack or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and put "childcare request" in the subject line. Thanks!!
