RODRIGO SAAVEDRA Running for: Recording Secretary

WHAT CITY OR NEIGHBORHOOD ARE YOU IN? Westwood

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED WITH DSA-LA? 3 years (joined March, 2016) WHAT ABOUT DSA MADE YOU WANT TO JOIN? I'm a Chilean socialist and DSA seemed like the largest, most vibrant political organ to help advocate for socialism in this country. I particularly appreciate this organization's commitment to democracy as well as socialism. To quote Salvador Allende "Our revolution should be one of empanadas and red wine!".

WHAT COMMITTEES, WORKING GROUPS, OR ACTIVITIES HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED IN WITHIN DSA-LA? TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE. I joined the Immigration Justice Committee in January 2017 and became its membership chair around June of that year.

I founded the Food 4 Solidarity unofficial Working Group to advocate a campaign that would distribute free groceries and provide political education to immigrant working class families, in direct cooperation with DSA National and local churches in LA's Eastside.

After that got voted down, I decided to organize with undocumented immigrants directly for a bit, in UCLA. And now I'm back. Hurray?
