Drug Forum

In late 1990, Baltimore DSA hosted a forum on "Alternatives to the War on Drugs." Speakers included Chuck Hollander, consultant on drug policy Richard Karel, journalist; and Eric E. Sterling, president, Criminal Justice Policy Foundation.[1]

1991 activity

Baltimore DSA activists reported that they were attracting new members to DSA and working to reinvigorate the progressive community in the wake of the Persian Gulf war. The local sponsored a workshop on democratic socialism at the American Friends Youth Awareness program and were campaigning for union organizer Robert Simpson's bid for city council.

Activists also joined the local Jobs with Justice campaign for national health care.[2]

2015 re-launch

In The Washington Socialist, Labor Day 2015 Jonathan Phipps urged socialists to;
