Monthly Meeting Time!

Join the Miami Democratic Socialists of America for our body-wide Monthly Meeting where we'll be talking about our ongoing Bernie campaign, our working groups, and interviewing Melba Pearson, a candidate for Miami Dade State Attorney who is seeking our chapter's endorsement. Pearson is challenging longtime incumbent Katherine Fernandez Rundle and is running on proposals such as ending cash bail, holding police accountable and winding down War on Drugs policies. Please come with questions about her platform and past experience that will help inform our endorsement process. You can read more about her candidacy here:

The meeting will be held at 2:00pm on Sunday, February 23rd at the Center for Social Change at 2103 Coral Way, 2nd Floor. Location is WC accessible. Food and drinks will be provided. There is paid street parking and a garage connected to the building.

Hope to see you there!
