LILAC’s response to the Steering Committee of Philly DSA

  • The Education Justice Interest Group won Philly DSA a place on the Our City Our Schools coalition, the only socialist constituent organizing alongside labor unions, education activists, and community organizations.
  • The Immigration Justice Interest Group organized to build connections with immigrant justice and leftist groups, protecting undocumented people in the city by playing a pivotal role in a coalition that forced Mayor Jim Kenney to cancel the city’s data sharing PARS contract with ICE.
  • The Racial Justice Interest Group mobilized 24 members to attend a workweek day of action in Harrisburg with the Poor People’s Campaign; many of these members had not previously participated in actions by the Local. The RJIG also improved members’ skills at organizing around racial justice issues by hosting a training by the Afro-Socialist and Socialists of Color Caucus and a conducting a reading group of Assad Haider’s Mistaken Identity: Race and Class in the Age of Trump.
