Connecting at our Holiday Party

Some 75 DSA members, prospective members and friends enjoyed refreshments and fellowship at our “Holiday Party and Post-Election Connection” Dec. 16 in the First Existentialist Congregation sanctuary. MADSA Chair Milt Tambor reviewed our recent membership growth and introduced contact people for our working groups, inspiring many to sign up to participate. See photo at right: (l to r) Labor – Adam Cardo and – not shown – Eric Robertson; Action – Daniel Hanley; LGBTQ Issues – Travis Reid and – not shown – Barbara Segal; Social Media – Barbara Joye; and Political Education – Ray Miklethun. A new group on women’s issues is also in formation. (For more info on working groups, come to our Jan. 15 Socialist Dialogue – see Calendar.)

Other highlights:

We heard from Neil Sardana of Atlanta Jobs with Justice about that important coalition. Dougie “the Abolitionist” Hanson (see photo, left) gave a rousing call for resistance (and to tune in to his Saturday radio program, “Voices of Dissent,” on WIGO). Adam Cardo promoted the Jacobin Reading Group. Milt announced a Jan. 7 fundraiser for Sen. Vincent Fort’s mayoral race (Sen. Fort later joined the party). We especially enjoyed getting to know new members and friends, building the community that we will surely need in the coming months and years. (Photos: Reid Freeman Jenkins)
