Central Iowa Democratic Socialists of America October 17 2019·
This week the members of Central Iowa Democratic Socialists of America voted overwhelmingly to endorse Chelsea Chism-Vargas in her campaign to represent Ward 4 on the Des Moines City Council. Chelsea is a life-long southsider, a proud daughter of Peruvian immigrants, a tireless advocate for the working class of Des Moines, and a member of Central Iowa DSA. Chelsea works as an organizer at Planned Parenthood fighting for the right of all people to access the reproductive health care they need. Chelsea has seen up close the challenges that ordinary residents of Des Moines face every day and we believe she is uniquely suited to bring a fresh perspective to the City Council that will provide a stark contrast with the incumbent.
