Who's Hosting This Event?

Austin DSA
Who We Are:

Democratic Socialists of America is the largest socialist organization in the United States and we are in the midst of explosive growth nationally and locally. We are not a political party; we are an activist organization. Our vision is of a democratically run economy and society that gives power to the people rather than the privileged elites.

We’re coming into the home stretch! We are now at the point where there are amendments on the table before city council which would, if passed actually remove $100 MILLION dollars from APD to spend on essential services and alternative first response. Something that would have been flatly impossible a few years ago is now just a few votes from being a reality, but we have to work as hard as possible to make sure we get those votes!

Austin DSA will be calling progressive voters in the districts of the swing council members to make sure they tell their council members to move forward on truly transformative reforms! We’re using an auto-dialer, which makes the calls faster and more effective the more people who are doing it at once, which means you should BRING A FRIEND (or comrade). We’ll be training folks to speak on the specific amendments, and then working through our entire list!
