Seattle DSA is committed to playing a much bigger role in 2023. But to do this, we need to be better organized and have a bigger megaphone to reach our supporters and the broader working class.
In October our chapter voted to hire two part-time staff members – a major milestone for Seattle DSA. The two staff will help activate our 1,500 members, build in South King County, and ramp up our chapter’s communications and media.
With its multi-racial working class – the need to build the forces of socialism in South King County is clear. Raise the Wage Tukwila winning by 82% showed there is an opening, and we’ve established points of support during the Gallardo campaign.
But to build DSA in South King County will take serious resources.
To make a substantial impact on Seattle politics we need to take steps toward developing our own socialist media. It is unacceptable that the Seattle left has to rely on two non-socialist publications (The Stranger & the Urbanist) to sometimes get our message out. Hiring our own communications staffer is an important step in building our own media infrastructure – but it costs money.
As part of hiring staff we are launching a drive to increase our local dues and donations by $3,500/month. But we understand that not everyone can make regular donations. If you are more comfortable making a one-time donation, please use this form. Any amount, whether recurring or one-time, is appreciated.
