Candidate Statement: Karina S.

Hello! I'm your friendly neighborhood socialist bartender! Through work on bylaws, with M4A, on Meetings Comm, and in left study groups I've pushed for an org that embraces all parts of the working class.

My dream DSA:

  • Respects Big Tent organizing built from our varied lived experiences.
  • Sets open, democratic engagement as the default, nurturing us as active agents in our own liberation.
  • Supports and protects multi- and minority-tendency educational programs mining the rich legacies of the left.
  • Emphasizes experimentation and rigorous self-examination.
  • Strives to be healthier than the institutions we seek to dismantle, especially for our most vulnerable comrades.
