Political Education Reading Group: Red State Revolt

On Tuesday, July 23rd join Miami DSA's Political Education Working Group to discuss Eric Blanc's Red State Revolt: The Teachers' Strikes and Working-Class Politics.

The book offers a sharp summary of last spring’s teacher insurgencies and draws valuable lessons from which we can learn.

It is currently on sale at Verso Books, along with a number of other great titles.  If you would like a free version of the ebook, please shoot us an email and we can provide you a copy.

Hope to see you there!

Labor Organizing 101: How to Form a Union

Miami DSA and Florida Future Labor Leaders are working in coalition on a series of workshops to offer you the resources and in-person training to form a union in your workplace. The first will be held on Thursday, July 25th. We will walk you through each step of the process, while also offering a history of the labor struggles in South Florida. It's a history you'll be proud to join.

Socialist Happy Hour

Join us at Gramps on Friday, July 19th at 6pm for a socialist happy hour! We'll be getting to know each other better and talking about our organizing. Prospective and non-members welcome!

Help us get to the Convention!

Every two years, DSA chapters from across the country come together to make big decisions for the future of the organization. This year's convention is taking place August 2-4 in Atlanta. Our delegates have already paid a lot out of pocket to make it there, and we would urge you to consider giving to our GoFundMe to support them.

2020 Ballot Initiatives Canvassing

We continue our petition drive for possible 2020 state-wide ballot initiatives including Medicaid Expansion, $15/hour Minimum Wage and Cannabis Legalization. Stay tuned for the date and time of our next canvass– it will most likely take place next weekend!

Donate to Miami DSA!

For nearly the entirety of DSA's history in Miami, we've organized, served our community, offered trainings and educational events with virtually no money. You can help us expand and sustain our work by becoming a monthly sustainer or giving a one-time donation. Thank you so much for your support.
