  • Single-Payer Canvass, South Berkeley

    Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 01:00 PM
    RSVP for address

    We are building working-class power behind the demand for single-payer healthcare neighborhood by neighborhood. Our district canvassing program is only growing larger, and there's no better time than now to join us, whether you've been canvassing yet or not. We have two canvasses scheduled for the next few weeks: one in Oakland district 1 (North Oakland) and one in Berkeley district 3 (South Berkeley).

    Having substantive conversations with our neighbors, door to door, will build critical mass of mobilized workers that can take on the private insurance companies.

    Lunch, training, practice, and materials will be provided. Just bring yourself and your commitment to the cause.

  • General Membership Meeting

    Sunday, December 10, 2017 at 01:00 PM
    Omni Commons in Oakland, CA

    Join your fellow East Bay DSA members for the first of our bi-monthly membership meetings! This is an opportunity to meet new comrades, learn about what's happening in the chapter, and participate in our shared democratic process. These meetings, which include voting and debate on proposals for chapter projects, are the highest decision-making body within our chapter. Your participation is crucial for determining our shared political and organizational priorities.

    A draft agenda of business to be voted on at the meeting will be posted to the East Bay DSA website on Tuesday, November 21, and the final agenda — including any amendments submitted to the proposals — will be posted by Sunday, December 3.

    The agenda is crafted by the Local Council (LC) and by general membership. Agenda items are either developed by members in collaboration with the Local Council, or brought forward by LC committees. Members can also automatically put a proposal on the agenda by gathering the signatures of 10 percent of our chapter membership, which currently equals 90 members. Please see the full set of meeting deadlines and procedures here. Members will also be able to submit position papers in support of or opposed to proposals, to be published on our website, via a link that will be posted with the draft and final agendas.

    Meetings like this take a lot of collective effort! Please volunteer to help with setup, sign-in, and other important tasks.
