New England DSA conference

Eric Wimer March 25 2019·

I loved this conference. It was fantastic to see every chapter in New England (and they're all chapters, not OCs now, thanks Lisa!) show up in force. From the varied, interesting workshops, to a very comradley and productive debate, to every conversation had a lunch or the social, I really couldn't have imagined this conference going better. And it needed to, because the clock is ticking, and only the fundamental change that these organizers are fighting for will save us. We can win a better world!

Inside/Outside Project

From an article on Organizing Upgrade October 5, 2018 on the :Left Inside/Outside Project.

Fighting Trump and Building the Left, from the Left Inside/Outside Project

But it’s also an exciting time to be part of the U.S. left. We have momentum on all the levels we have to work on, and more energy for these efforts than we have seen in decades. We take the inspiration from the examples listed above, and recognize that our main challenge is bringing our work to scales that will be able to shift the balance of forces in the U.S. The Left Inside/Outside Project formed out of a common feeling that U.S. politics after Trump required both serious engagement with electoral politics and a left that could work collaboratively to build on our existing strengths. Twenty months later, we still believe this: our commitment is to work ever more closely together with this vision, to learn from one another, build on our most advanced experiences, and build a more unified and effective socialist movement that is in this fight for the long haul.
