May Day, also known as International Workers’ Day, has a long history as a day of commemoration and celebration for the working class. As socialists, we want to continue this tradition and meet up to celebrate May Day, especially after more than a year of being distanced, alienated, and without community.
Join us on Saturday, May 1, in Tower Grove Park at 2 pm, for a socially distanced May Day picnic. STL DSA will be grilling and providing food and refreshments, but anyone who attends can bring their own food or refreshments (just no glass bottles please). We’ll also have options for vegetarians/vegans and can accommodate other dietary needs, as requested (just let us know!).
Feel free to bring along friends and/or family members, including kids! It will be an all ages-appropriate event. We just ask that you RSVP and note any additional guests on your RSVP, as the city of St. Louis is still restricting gatherings to 50 people or less. Once you RSVP, someone from STL DSA will reach out to you before the event with more details about the exact location within Tower Grove Park.
We look forward to celebrating on May Day with you!
Demand the PRO Act to Strengthen Organized Labor
Neoliberalism has significantly weakened the labor movement over the last few decades, but Congress is debating passing the PRO Act, which would be one of the most pro-labor bills since the New Deal. DSA has a massive phonebanking campaign going on to apply pressure to Congress, but we need extra help! DSA needs to raise funds to keep the phonebanking going, so if you can afford it, please donate. If youhttps://airtable.com/shrSsfC04676HiNCQ want to help out with phonebanking, please sign up here.
Interested in leading one of our committees? Nominate yourself here!
We are currently accepting nominations to lead our Communications, Community, Political Education, and Technology committees. If interested, please apply here ASAP, as there’s only one day left to submit! Once you do, the Executive Committee will follow up with a questionnaire to complete.
At our next chapter meeting on Tuesday, April 27, all interested candidates will be invited to give a short speech and answer questions from members, with an electronic election scheduled to be held after the meeting.
Help SocFem Surpass $7,500 in Funds Raised for Abortion Access by Joining the Team!
STL DSA's Socialist Feminist Working Group is organizing for the annual Abortion Access Fund-a-Thon. They have already raised more than 30% of the Missouri Abortion Fund-A-Thon goal!
The team is now less than $300 away from surpassing $7,500 in funds raised for abortion access. Please create your fundraising page and/or donate to one of our team members, and help us continue making a tremendous difference for Missourians who need access to abortions and supportive care.
Attacks on abortion are attacks on the working class. Please, make a fundraising page to help us in this fight. https://fund.nnaf.org/team/344846
