Working through the Democrats
Writing on the Freedom Road Socialist Organization website in January 2008 FRSO National Executive Committee member Jamala Rogers, urged her comrades to work inside the Democratic Party when conditions were suitable;
- Build locally based, independent, progressive mass electoral organizations that can identify, train and run candidates for office within the Democratic Party or as independents, depending on the actual situation at the local level. Such locally based organizations should be seen as a component in laying the basis for an eventual electoral realignment, but should not be created as independent political parties. They must be more than PACs, 527s or think tanks in that they must be a means for real people to interact with the electoral arena in ways other than as objects. Such organizations should seek to give electoral voice to the various progressive social movements that are not, mainly, electoral.
