Good Morning Chicago DSA,   I hope everybody had an excellent week. I know many of us had a particularly excellent Tuesday when we found out that our terrible, no good, very garbage mayor Rahm Emanuel would not be running for a third term in office. There’s still a lot of time between now and… Read More

Good Morning Chicago DSA, Normally, this is the part of the email where I say that I hope you had a good week and maybe say something inspiring and sweet about socialism before transitioning to the events. Well, guess what, folks – I’m not doing that this week. This week we’re getting stuff done. We’re… Read More

Good Morning Chicago DSA, I hope everybody had an excellent week last week. I know I personally had a great time on Wednesday at the North Side Steering Committee elections. Hopefully, if you’re a member who lives on the North Side you were able to make it out. It was an hour and a half… Read More

Good Morning Chicago DSA, I want to start out by giving some major kudos to everybody who was out in the heat yesterday. Whether it was those who were out at train stops talking to people about Medicare for All and CPAC, or the folks who showed up to march in the Bud Biliken Parade,… Read More

Good Morning Chicago DSA, We had over 100 socialists at the New Member Orientation last week, which, if you’re one of those new member’s and you’re getting this email for the first time: welcome! We’ve grown so much as an organization just in the last couple months and it’s been amazing seeing so many new… Read More

Good Morning Chicago DSA, If you’re one of my many loyal (aka somewhat involuntary) readers, you may notice that the TWITCDSA email looks a little different than it normally does.  Not only does it now have some fancy images but the email address is different too. That’s because it’s being sent out with Action Network instead… Read More

Good Morning Chicago DSA, Wow, what a week. If you missed it, Cynthia Nixon, progressive candidate for governor in NY and star of Sex and the City, declared that she was a democratic socialist and reached out to NYDSA for endorsement. While this definitely seems a bit opportunistic surrounding the Ocasio-Cortez victory, it’s really good that we’re… Read More

Good Morning Chicago DSA, If you haven’t noticed, the DSA and talk of democratic socialism in the US has been everywhere the last few weeks. Whether it’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s rise to fame or DSA’s Abolish Ice actions (huge props to all of our activists that shut down a deportation flight on Friday, btw), we’re getting… Read More

Good Morning Chicago DSA, I’m feeling particularly grand this morning, and I hope you are as well. I’ve got this sense of centered contentedness that usually only comes with things like: a newly organized closet, turning the last page on a good book, or looking out from a mountain vista after a good hard hike….
