We (Seattle DSA) want to have a bigger impact in 2023!
In October 2022 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.
To directly support hiring staff we are launching a “Staff Fund” to increase our income by $3,500/month through one time donations and recurring monthly donations. If you want to donate directly toward hiring staff - you are in the right place!
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.
Raising an additional $3,500/month will be a challenge but is completely within our reach! Consider that we raised $15,000 to send members and Starbucks workers to Labor Notes and the Socialism Conference, we raised over $4,000 to put on the Oct 8 Abortion Rights rally, and we raised thousands to support striking Starbucks workers. We’ve proven we can do this!
If 175 members or supporters made a $20/month recurring donation , we could raise the $3,500 a month we need! But don’t stop there! If you can afford to give more - please do!
We're also happy to accept one time donations as well.
Any amount you are able to donate will make a difference in Building A Socialist Future.
