Electoral Politics Meeting
January 16 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
As Miami DSA prepares to vote on its next campaign, we also want to begin a broader dialogue about how/when/why we choose to engage in electoral politics. Where does it make sense for us to put our time, effort, and resources? How can certain positions be swayed towards our demands? Do we work within or outside of the current electoral system? How do we do both, etc.?
To that end, DSA, YDSA at FIU, and local members involved with Movement for a People’s Party (MPP) are planning a meeting to discuss all of these aspects and more. We will have the regional coordinator from MPP speak with us about their work to build a new non-corporate-funded major party, and how organizations like Miami DSA might play a role in such an effort. We may also discuss, compare, and debate strategies associated with infiltrating existing (i.e. Democratic) party structures to achieve our goals. If you have any interest in achieving our aims through electoral ends, you will enjoy the discussion we’re planning for this meeting.
