In 2019, socialists should prioritize building a Bernie 2020 campaign and the struggle for Medicare for All, supporting labor militancy and mobilizations against oppression, launching a Green New Deal campaign, and strengthening DSA’s political education programs.
As the beginning of the 2020 presidential campaign draws closer, DSA chapters need to start thinking about how their Bernie campaign work will advance class politics and build a mass movement.
To win a real political revolution, socialists need a program to dramatically defend, expand, and deepen democracy.
Medicare for All is one of the central demands that we organize around in the Democratic Socialists of America. This is the case to keep it at the forefront of our politics.
Democratic socialists believe that we can create a more just, egalitarian, and democratic society. But first we have to unite the working class in a broad movement that uses elections, workplace organizing, and mass mobilizations to break the power of the capitalist class.
The working class and workplace organizing are at the center of our strategy because they are the key to winning struggles against both exploitation and oppression.
Socialists can and must combine the struggles against class exploitation and social oppression.
The 2020 presidential campaign begins sooner than people realize. This is the case for why DSA should back Bernie Sanders again.
YDSA needs a clear plan for how to organize to win. We can start by focusing on working-class struggles and training socialist cadre.
