Demand a People First Budget in 2021!

For decades, the working class, poor, and people of color have long suffered the effects of austerity and cuts to public services while the wealthy have gotten richer and more powerful. In order to pass a People First Budget, St. Louis DSA demands the following of local politicians to

  1. NO cuts to public services EXCEPT police and jails.
  2. Veto or vote no on ANY legislation that privatizes a publicly owned utility or asset -- selling OR leasing.
  3. Support legislation that protects publicly owned utilities and assets.

Chapter Priorities
