AMY CLARK Running for: Steering Committee at-large
WHAT CITY OR NEIGHBORHOOD ARE YOU IN? Los Feliz
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED WITH DSA-LA? 1 year WHAT ABOUT DSA MADE YOU WANT TO JOIN? I was seeing DSA-LA where it mattered. When I was looking for a way to get involved locally in a way that made a tangible difference, I would find DSA organizing around each issue that I researched. I also appreciate the fact that DSA is a big tent organization—I felt welcomed because I cared about socialism but was also given room to explore different viewpoints and to grow as a socialist.
WHAT COMMITTEES, WORKING GROUPS, OR ACTIVITIES HAVE YOU BEEN INVOLVED IN WITHIN DSA-LA? TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE. When I first joined DSA, I explored a number of committees before finding a home in Membership Committee. There, I began to lead the planning of central branch meetings and recently became half of the Materials Subcommittee. I really enjoy the high-level thinking and planning that those roles require, and I feel confident planning events and working with a team to complete zines and flyers (mostly) on deadline. In addition to my work with Mem-Com, I’ve been involved with events through Housing as well as canvassing for Prop 10 and Jackie Goldberg.
