38] – The Metro DC DSA [] indicates that on Thurs., June 1 at 6:30 PM ET there will be a Social Housing organizing meeting. Learn about its latest activities, what is planned for the future, and how to get involved. The Social Housing Working Group seeks to educate Metro DC DSA chapter members and the general public about social housing and to facilitate collective action in support of the passage and implementation of the Green New Deal for Housing Amendment Act. The legislation proposes to create mixed-income, district-owned housing with market rate units that subsidize a larger number of affordable units. It's a pioneering approach that deepens affordability, invests surplus funds into the creation of more social housing, and locks-in financial sustainability. The bill also includes climate and labor standards and elected tenant boards with oversight over building management. This event is open to both DSA Members and supporters. RSVP at

Share the application here: As working-class communities continue to be crushed under the weight of stagnant wages, rising costs of living, mounting debt, environmental calamities, and the dismantlement of long-established rights and protections — this is a time to organize, mobilize, and empower each other to rise up in sustained mass resistance.  Sign up at
