DSA Socialist Feminists Call on Joe Biden to Drop Out

DSA Socialist Feminists Call on Joe Biden to Drop Out was a May 2020 letter to Joe Biden.

Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden stands accused of sexual assault. Members of the Democratic Socialists of America demand that he leave the race.

As socialists, we believe that the lessons of the #MeToo movement must not be forgotten. This movement challenged rape culture and upended myths about sexual violence and the credibility of survivors. For a short period, these issues were even embraced by many liberal politicians and commentators, as evidenced by the widespread support for Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford when she bravely spoke out about incumbent Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. #MeToo made previously tolerated behavior intolerable, and powerful men in numerous industries faced consequences for their misconduct....

We, the undersigned, call on Joe Biden to leave the race. We also call on elected officials endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America to rescind any endorsements of Joe Biden.

Signatories included Jonathan Williams.

US Social Forum

The US Social Forum, was a gathering of over 15,000 "peace and justice-mongers" in Detroit, June 2010. . The Forum kicked off with a high energy, spirited march into downtown Detroit on Tuesday. Judith LeBlanc and Dave Kunes "had the pleasure of marching with our Peace Action of Michigan homies, and also Will Hopkins from New Hampshire Peace Action".

On Wednesday "we had a terrific mini-organizers meeting", led by Paul Kawika Martin, Jonathan Williams and Judith LeBlanc, with leaders from affiliates and chapters from across the country. That night we hosted a wonderful reception at the Swords into Plowshares gallery and peace center near downtown Detroit. Thanks "to Helen Weber, national Peace Action co-chair and PA MI stalwart, for her work, and also to the other wonderful Michigan volunteers who made the event a success".[3]
