Candidate Statement: Nicholas T.
As a delegate, I want to help ensure that DSA remains relevant after the 2020 election, whatever the result. We shouldn’t limit ourselves to possibilities listed on a ballot, but rather shift the limits of the possible through organizing. DSA should focus on building the capacities of our class to collectively challenge capitalist domination as it manifests in our everyday lives. Infrastructure built to engage in electoral campaigns, on the other hand, comes with an expiration date. Only organizing that centers our position in capitalism—as renters, as workers, as people brutalized by police—can grow into a mass movement against capitalism.
