Join the Community Committee!
Do you want to help others get more involved in STL DSA, make our chapter a welcoming and accessible organization and build a stronger organization that can fight for socialism? If so, join the Community Committee and fill out this interest form.
Our next Community Committee Meeting is on Monday, February 13, at 6 pm. The venue is yet TBD, but RSVP here now, so you get updates when we have a location selected.
Become an Internal Organizer!
Internal Organizers (IOs) are active members who take the lead on regularly reaching out to members (both new and those that have been members for some time). These IOs welcome members into the chapter and help them find areas where they can get involved and become more active within STL DSA.

Volunteers Needed at the Shelter on Kennerly This Winter
As we enter the beginning of a long winter, shelter space is incredibly important to keeping our unhoused neighbors safe. Rep. Kimberly Ann-Collins has opened a shelter at 4145 Kennerly Ave., St. Louis, MO, 63113, which is currently housing 50 people nightly.
But one person can’t do it all alone, and volunteers are desperately needed to keep the shelter open and running. Roles include staffing the shelter itself and delivering food.
Please sign up for a shift at the Kennerly shelter during this crucial time, and help us meet the needs of our unhoused neighbors while we fight for St. Louis City to meet its responsibilities on shelter and permanent housing.
If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact our Acting Housing Justice Co-Chair Chris W. at [email protected].
