From a Moment to a Movement

We continued our Bernie campaign this past Sunday with a canvass in the Little River/Gladview area. With a remarkable turnout, we collectively knocked on over doors in 2 hours.  It was evident from the overwhelmingly positive reaction we received that Bernie is gaining momentum among ordinary working class people. 

It was also Miami DSA's first time canvassing with MiniVan, a canvassing app recently rolled out to chapters by DSA’s national body.  Unlike what we saw in Iowa, the app worked wonders and really helped our volunteers effectively navigate unfamiliar turf.

Whether or not Bernie wins, the movement that he has inspired must endure long after his campaign has ended, or else we won’t be able to enact his platform, much less socialism.  We believe DSA is uniquely positioned to absorb much of the energy powering the campaign when that day comes.  Join us as we try to get Bernie elected.  And join us, also, as we build a movement that is bigger than single election– a mass socialist movement that will fight to the end for the many, not the few.
Miami DSA for Bernie Phone Bank
For the last 4 months Miami DSA has been knocking doors and talking to working people about the Bernie Sanders campaign and our vision for a more humane social order. Join us on Wednesday, February 12th as we follow up with these folks to make sure they are registered to vote, know where their polling place is and cast their ballot for Bernie! We will be meeting at the Center for Social Change (2103 Coral Way, 2nd Floor) at 6:30.

Please bring a laptop and phone, and come help us build the movement behind Bernie. Training will be provided at the beginning.
Our comrades on the Bird Road Podcast had a chance to interview Melba Pearson, the progressive candidate running against Katherine Fernandez Rundle for the position of State Attorney. She took some time to talk about how she would do the job, what justice in Miami-Dade should look like, decriminalization of marijuana and other drugs, sex work, houselessness and myriad other issues.  Give it a listen! We'll also get a chance to interview her ourselves at our monthly meeting on February the 23rd.
