Update: Chicago DSA’s Labor Working Group

Chicago DSA’s Labor Working Group has had a busy winter. We’ve walked the picket line with striking workers, hosted a Workers Town Hall and Labor 101, and met monthly to discuss developments in the labor movement and how DSA can be involved. We strive to bring an analysis of how to leverage the power of the working class as workers to all Chicago DSA campaigns, including Lift the Ban, Medicare for All, and Democratize ComEd.
