Running for DSA leadership
In 2020 Ghassan Ammar ran for an At-Large Portland Democratic Socialists of America steering committee.
- After being encouraged to do so from a few comrades I respect, I have decided to run as an at-large representative of our chapter’s Steering Committee (SC). For the past year and a half, I have been serving as an officer of our Grievance Committee (GC). I was also a chapter delegate sent to the 2019 National DSA Convention.
- Most recently I worked with other members to develop our Community Code of Conduct, which also led to the establishment of our Conflict Resolution Working Group. If elected to our Steering Committee, I will continue to be a voice for member welfare and chapter wellness (a mission I feel I can serve better on the SC than the GC).
