Bylaws are the basic rules that define how an organization governs itself. For East Bay DSA, as an organization committed to democratic governance by its members, our bylaws' most important function is to establish the democratic structures through which we make decisions, carry out collective goals, and elect accountable leaders.

Meeting Notes and Past Resolutions

Transparency is built into our democratic organization. Part of that transparency is to share the notes from our most important meetings, such as Steering Committee meetings and meetings of our general membership.

East Bay DSA’s Harassment and Grievance Process

East Bay Democratic Socialists of America is committed to creating a space that is welcoming and inclusive to members of all genders, races, class backgrounds, and abilities. At our 2017 national DSA convention, we passed Resolution #33, which provides guidelines to ensure that everyone is able to organize without fear of harassment, abuse, or harm. The resolution also establishes a process to handle these types of charges between members. Additionally, East Bay DSA has a code of conduct that all members are expected to abide by.
