DSA Mid-Hudson Workplan February – Aug 2019

Share on

Adopted at our Founding Member Assembly on February 9, 2019.

Regular member meetings and outreach rotate between Kingston, Newburgh, and Poughkeepsie on the second Saturday of each month at 11 am.

Member education presentations rotate between Kingston, Newburgh, and Poughkeepsie, in that order on the fourth Wednesday at six pm. Location, topics, and materials that members need for preparation are announced at the previous meeting and posted to our calendars.

Join and use Slack to coordinate our work. Ask for an invitation and for help if you need it.

We anticipate issue-based working groups will form e.g. Medicare 4 All, Labor Support and Outreach, and Fundraising. We also welcome caucuses e.g. Afrosocialists and Socialists of Color, Disability Caucus.

Step up. Please see a Steering Committee member if you want to take Point on a regularly scheduled activity or if you need support forming a caucus or working group.
