In April 2017 Christian Bowe was a contact for Central New Jersey Democratic Socialists of America.
- I’m Christian Bowe, I’m 25 and live in Central New Jersey and work in New York City.
- I was elected Central NJ’s first chapter chair when we became a chapter, I primarily run social media committee for national, I’m on the internationalism and religious socialism working groups. I help national out with press, digital campaigns and outreach for campaigns and candidates we endorse. I’ve helped national pursue a distributed organizing model, shift to a 50 state strategy and become invested in digital organizing. I led most of our record breaking recruiting pushes and surges. As chapter chair for CNJ, I helped put together and launch Medicare for All and sanctuary county campaigns. I’ve also helped mentor a lot of new chapter leaders within the organization.
He is running to "continue building DSA up into a mass political organization that covers every part of the country -making DSA a truly multi-tendency organization that has Marxist representation on the NPC."

Left Inside/Outside Project phone conference
On May 23, 2018 the Left Inside/Outside Project hosted a call that brought together representatives of the Communist Party USA, Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, Democratic Socialists of America, Freedom Road Socialist Organization, and LeftRoots. The call focused on approaches to electoral politics of these organizations. It also provided an opportunity to explore potential for political alignment among the part of the left that broadly agrees with the strategy of building power inside and outside of electoral politics, and inside and outside of the Democratic Party.
Although there are significant differences among (and within) these organizations, generally they see electoral politics as a crucial one for the left to engage in. While engaging in electoral politics has its limitations, it presents huge opportunities, which the experiences of these organizations demonstrate, including a path to governing. In the U.S. today, where the fight against the far right must utilize all possible methods, it is also a necessity.
The call was moderated by Rishi Awatramani from LeftRoots. Speakers included Sendolo Diaminah from Freedom Road Socialist Organization, Rossana Cambron from the Communist Party USA, Christian Bowe from DSA, Maria (Maria Poblet?)from LeftRoots and Janet Tucker from the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism.
