Democratic Socialist of America active in Wichita
By SJ Otto
A local chapter of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) met here last Saturday, evening. The group of about 14 people discussed a variety of projects and events for the coming year, including taking part in the local version of the Women’s March, January 21. That march is being put on by local progressive groups to coincide with the Women’s March on Washington, on that same day. The Washington march is a planned national event by women who want the new Trump Administration to recognise that their voices will be heard and will count while he is in office. DSA will try to have a table at the local event.
There is also an even planned to support the protesters in Standing Rock, North Dakota, at the Wichita Indian Center.
Other events discussed included the Kansas People's Agenda event with people from around the state going to the Kansas State Capital, from 9:30 to 3:30, January 11.
There will be a DSA Training Day, Jan. 28, Peace and Social Justice Center of Kansas, 12pm to 4pm.
The Next meeting will be February 4, at 7pm.
