Candidate Statement: Matt S.

I am an incoming Steering Committee member, and I currently serve as our 2020 Committee co-chair and sit on DSA’s national Medicare for All Organizing Committee. Over the past two years, I’ve served as the M4A Committee co-chair, an M4A Regional Organizer, and the field director for EBDSA’s Jovanka Beckles/Prop 10 campaign. In this time, I have helped build campaigns locally and nationally that advance transformative socialist politics, and in Atlanta, I will fight for priorities that continue building DSA’s power through mass campaigns—for Bernie 2020 and class-struggle elections, Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, and rank-and-file labor organizing.
