Solidarity Not Sanctions In-Person Event This Thursday, May 26
Sanctions are a significant tool of the U.S. empire, used to squash socialist movements in other countries. Most notably, the US has enacted brutal sanctions against Cuba and Venezuela.
Join STL DSA, the Anti-Imperialist Action Committee, and the Inter-Faith Committee on Latin America (IFCLA) this Thursday, May 26, for a report-back on these sanctions and a conversation on what we can do to be in solidarity with socialist movements in Latin America and the Caribbean. Héctor Figarella and Celina della Croce from the Anti-Imperialist Action Committee will lead the discussion.
The event begins at 6 pm at The Fortune Teller Bar (2635 Cherokee).
RSVP here for the event.

Starbucks Workers Fighting Fund & Solidarity is Brewing! Sign-up Form
We know that when workers fight and stand up for their rights, the bosses don’t just back down. If and when management attacks Starbucks workers, we stand united behind them as socialists and fellow partners in struggle.
Please donate to our fund in solidarity here.
100% of proceeds will be directed to Starbucks workers organizing in stores throughout the St. Louis region to support their livelihoods while they’re taking brave and risky action against one of the most powerful employers in the world.
SOLIDARITY IS BREWING! SIGN-UP FORM:
DSA has made it a nationwide priority to support organizing Starbucks workers that file in our region! If you’re a Starbucks worker at a store that has filed, a worker in an unorganized workplace, a worker in another union looking to show solidarity or you’ve been watching the labor wave from a distance but haven’t yet gotten involved, please fill out this form here and join us!
Note: If you’re a Starbucks worker at a store that hasn’t yet filed or started organizing, we can connect you with the union!

STL DSA Votes to Re-endorse Congresswoman Cori Bush
When the exploited and oppressed are under attack, Cori Bush has been there. From the streets of Ferguson and St. Louis, to the halls of Congress for the last two years, she has been a champion for working-class and democratic-socialist values, giving a voice to the movement in the center of political power in this country.
Because of this, STL DSA is PROUD to re-endorse Rep. Bush for her re-election, in both the August primary and November general election.
Stay tuned for ways to get involved in this campaign and keep DSA members in power!
