DSA Latin American leaders meeting

On April 17, 1993 Democratic Socialists of America hosted a reception for an "extremely distinguished delegation of democratic socialist leaders from Latin America". The guests, all of whom would be running for president of their respective countries within the next year, included Ruben Zamora of El Salvador, Cuauhtemoc Cardenas of Mexico, Antonio Navarro Wolff of Colombia, and Luis Ignacio Lula da Silva (Lula) of Brazil.

ACTWU President Jack Sheinkman, DSA NPC member Jose LaLuz and reception host Gene Eisner, participated.[1]

Bernie Sanders fundraiser

During the summer and fall of 2006 Democratic Socialists of America Political Action Committee helped DSA activists around the country, “from San Diego up to Maine” to host house parties to raise funds that helped Bernie Sanders become the sole Socialist in the U.S. Senate.

The New York City event was on September 19 at the home of Eugene Eisner and Laurel Eisner on the Upper West Side. New York City DSA Chair Kenny Schaeffer reports "that it was very successful and brought in a lot of old faces he hadn’t been seeing in a while". [2]
