Training: Building Democratic Socialist Power

Sat, Mar 9, 2019 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm


We know we want, even need socialism, but how do we make it a reality? The answer is that we organize! But what is organizing, and how should we do it in DSA?

Join HVDSA members and fellow-travelers for a training designed to sharpen our skills as socialist organizers & develop our chapter’s organizing infrastructure. At this training, we will explore core concepts of organizing, discuss a potential democratic socialist organizing model, and practice organizing conversations. A discussion of how HVDSA should move forward in creating an infrastructure for organizing our members and supporters will conclude the training.

Liz will be available for child watch during the event, but please email us at if you plan to bring a child so we can prepare some fun activities!

The training will be held in Studio 1, which is on the second floor of the building. To reach the room using the elevator, enter Riverside via the elevatory entrance on Huron, select floor 3, and follow signs for "Rehearsal Studios." Parking is available on the north side of the building, on Huron St. just south of Riverside Arts, and in nearby commercial lots.
