I want to recognize the local organizations on the ground everyday canvassing, connecting with folk, providing security detail, putting up signs in the community.... you may not see them in the spotlight all the time but they work like hell in support of Amazon Democratic Socialist of America Birmingham Chapter 🌹, SWEET Alabama, Black Lives Matter Birmingham, Dynamite Hill-Smithfield Community Land Trust, Alabama Working Families Party, and, of course, Our Revolution Birmingham.

Statement on Anti Blackness in the DSA

Statement on Anti Blackness in the DSA was released in February 2021:

We as the AfroSocialist and Socialists of Color Caucus stand in solidarity with the Black woman in DSA North Texas who was wrongfully suspended by DSA North Texas Co-chairs. This action by the DSA North Texas Co-chairs is racist and in particular anti-Black. This is not an isolated incident of racism but represents a pattern of anti-black and white supremacist actions within DSA which must be acknowledged, held accountable and systematically rooted out. There is a pattern of anti-black behavior that stems from the founding of DSA North Texas that has led to each generation of Co-chairs either perpetuating or being complicit in anti-black racism.

DSA member Nicole Watkins at today's Health Care is a Human Right Rally!: "The most important way we can fight for universal health care is by telling our stories, because I am not a statistic. I do not have less value because I am disabled. My community does not have less value because they are disabled, or poor, or Black, or Brown.”
