Candidate Statement: Richard Mu.

In the past year, I was heavily involved in EBDSA’s 2018 electoral efforts, in particular our campaigns for Jovanka Beckles in AD-15, and Prop 10. Through these campaigns, I learned the power of strategic, class struggle fights that place emphasis not on simply electing a single politician or passing one piece of legislation, but on expanding the power of the working class against the ruling class and heighten the contradictions of capitalism. At this year’s national convention, I hope to use this experience to build a stronger national DSA, ready to take on the challenges of 2020 and beyond.
