he Washington Socialist <> February 2017
By Bill Mosley
Metro-DC DSA capped off Anti-Inauguration Weekend with a membership meeting on Sunday, January 22 at Martin Luther King Memorial Library that drew over 100 people – the largest turnout for a local membership meeting in the memories of even long-time members. A few of the participants were out-of-town DSA members visiting DC for the protests and other anti-Trump resistance activities, but nearly all were from the Washington area, including a few prospective members.
The meeting’s emphasis was on involving new members in the local’s activities. Much of the meeting consisted of breakout sessions for the local’s committees: Racial Justice, Economic Justice, Communications, Climate Change and Environmental Justice, and Socialist Feminism. The influx of new members into the local promises to make Metro-DC DSA a major factor in resistance to Trump in the Washington area.
