DSA NPC newsletter August 20, 2020:

We’d also like to thank the six nationally endorsed DSA candidates (Justin Farmer, Megan Green, Rebecca Parson, Mary Ellen Biggerstaff, Nada Elmikashfi, and Dan Michniewicz), who narrowly lost, for running and for all the comrades who put in work for all of the campaigns we’ve mentioned.[2]

DSA endorsement

Democratic Socialists of America March 17·


DSA is proud to endorse Rebecca Parson for Congress, WA-06, a local organizer running to represent the working class of Tacoma and nearby counties. Her Democratic primary will be August 4th, 2020. Parson’s campaign is also endorsed by Tacoma DSA and West Sound Democratic Socialists of America because she’s running to give everyone a home and end homeless in America. She will be the fighter and organizer we need to win Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, and a Homes Guarantee.

As a queer woman, she understands the need to fight the diverse working-class and will lead the charge to defend the women’s rights, the LGBTQIA+ community, disability rights, indigenous communities, labor rights, and everyone in the working-class majority.

Locally, Parson has been a committed organizer and activist. She served on the Tacoma Area Commission on Disabilities, helped win new tenant protections in Tacoma, advocated for foster children, and more. Washington’s 6th District needs a representative for all of us — not just the wealthy few. It’s time for bold solutions, and Parson is the organizer we need to get us there.
