Hundreds of tenants were unable to pay rent after losing their jobs due to COVID-19 and decided to work collectively to prevent each other from being evicted with the rallying cry of “No job? No Rent!” The NoVA Tenant Organizers are expanding to other apartment complexes to talk to tenants about how they can organize with their neighbors to avoid eviction and demand better conditions from their landlords.Email: nova-tenants@mdcdsa.org

    SOS Anti-eviction Canvas
    1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

    Join comrades in this anti-eviction canvas! Come out and inform tenants facing eviction of their rights in court, how to get a lawyer, and to see if they’re interested in organizing their building. Tenants we speak to are twice as likely to go to court and fight their eviction, so every volunteer can make a big impact. We’ll meet at the L’Enfant Plaza Metro station near the 7th & Maryland exit above the escalators (if the weather is bad, we’ll be downstairs just before the turnstiles). At 1:30 PM we’ll have a short training to explain why these canvasses are necessary, how to talk to tenants about their upcoming eviction suits, and how to fill in walk-sheets. We’ll then hand out walk-sheets and set you up with a partner — if you’ve never done this before, we’ll try to set you up with a veteran who can show you the ropes!If you have a car, please drive it down to the meeting spot! Cars are helpful for getting canvassers to metro-inaccessible areas. (Parking near L’Enfant Plaza is a bit tricky, but doable!) Afterwards, we’ll plan to meet at a cafe to debrief the canvass! If you’re interested in our work but can’t canvass, reach out to tenants@mdcdsa.org to learn about other ways to get involved.

    Medicare 4 All Working Group Biweekly Meeting (May 9) | #M4A
    6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

    Democratic Socialists are fighting to make single-payer Medicare for All healthcare a reality.

    JOIN US

    Help us fight to replace our fractured and broken health system with a unified Medicare for All system.

    In\r
    order to get our politicians to buck their billionaire donors and side \r
    with the majority, we have to threaten them with a mass political \r
    movement. But the movement we need cannot be built overnight.

    That’s\r
    why we need each and every person to get involved. Winning Medicare for\r
    All will mean establishing a piece of real democratic socialism and \r
    building a broader working-class movement to take on the elite and the \r
    billionaire class.

    Protest Party Outside a Bowser Campaign Fundraiser
    5:00 pm – 5:00 pm

    Regular tenants in this city want to ask Mayor Muriel Bowser about the slum conditions her administration permits. Tenants have rats in their buildings; mold gives children asthma; the rental assistance checks they promised went missing. But Mayor Bowser has been dodging our questions for years! At an exclusive rooftop fundraiser on May 13, however, Mayor Bowser will be happy to party with comfortable guests who don’t face any of these issues. So at 5:00 outside Uline Arena, we’re going to set up our own party. We’ll have music, food, and flyers to share information about how the DC government neglects everyday people’s living conditions. Join us to help us ask Mayor Bowser our urgent questions!Los inquilinos de la ciudad quieren preguntarle a la alcaldesa Muriel Bowser sobre las condiciones terribles que su administración permite. Los inquilinos tienen ratas en sus edificios; el moho les da asma a nuestros niños; los cheques de asistencia de renta que nos prometieron desaparecieron. ¡Y la alcaldesa Bowser ha evitado nuestras preguntas durante años!Sin embargo, en una recaudación de fondos exclusiva el 13 de mayo, la alcaldesa Bowser estará feliz de celebrar con invitados que no enfrentan ninguno de estos problemas. En vez, a las 5:00 afuera de Uline Arena, montaremos nuestra propia fiesta. Tendremos música, comida y volantes para compartir información sobre el descuido que muestra el gobierno de DC por las condiciones de vida de la gente. ¡Únete a nosotros para ayudarnos a preguntarle a la alcaldesa Bowser nuestras preguntas!

    interact face to face, not on Zoom, and just have some fun, talking \r
    about socialism or whatever else might come up.As You Are \r

    Democratic Socialists are fighting to make single-payer Medicare for All healthcare a reality.

    JOIN US

    Help us fight to replace our fractured and broken health system with a unified Medicare for All system.

    In\r
    order to get our politicians to buck their billionaire donors and side \r
    with the majority, we have to threaten them with a mass political \r
    movement. But the movement we need cannot be built overnight.

    That’s\r
    why we need each and every person to get involved. Winning Medicare for\r
    All will mean establishing a piece of real democratic socialism and \r
    building a broader working-class movement to take on the elite and the \r
    billionaire class.

    Join comrades in this anti-eviction canvass! Come out and inform tenants \r
    facing eviction of their rights in court, how to get a lawyer, and to \r
    see if they’re interested in organizing their building. Tenants we speak\r
    to are twice as likely to go to court and fight their eviction, so \r
    every volunteer can make a big impact.We’ll meet at the L’Enfant Plaza \r
    Metro station near the D Street exit between 6th and 7th, above the \r
    escalators (if the weather is bad, we’ll be downstairs just before the \r
    turnstiles). At 1:30 PM we’ll have a short training to explain why these\r
    canvasses are necessary, how to talk to tenants about their upcoming \r
    eviction suits, and how to fill in walk-sheets. We’ll then hand out \r
    walk-sheets and set you up with a partner — if you’ve never done this \r
    before, we’ll try to set you up with a veteran who can show you the \r
    ropes!If you have a car, please drive it down to the meeting spot! Cars\r
    are helpful for getting canvassers to metro-inaccessible areas. \r
    (Parking near L’Enfant Plaza is a bit tricky, but doable!) After groups \r
    finish canvassing, folks can head to Sonny’s in Park View to socialize \r
    and debrief the canvass!If you’re interested in our work but can’t \r
    canvass, reach out to tenants@mdcdsa.org to learn about other ways to \r

    Democratic Socialists are fighting to make single-payer Medicare for All healthcare a reality.

    JOIN US

    Help us fight to replace our fractured and broken health system with a unified Medicare for All system.

    In\r
    order to get our politicians to buck their billionaire donors and side \r
    with the majority, we have to threaten them with a mass political \r
    movement. But the movement we need cannot be built overnight.

    That’s\r
    why we need each and every person to get involved. Winning Medicare for\r
    All will mean establishing a piece of real democratic socialism and \r
    building a broader working-class movement to take on the elite and the \r
    billionaire class.

    residents with debt, fails to meet DC’s climate goals, and is \r
    unaccountable to public decision making. Join us to protest Pepco’s greed and hear from DC residents who have suffered at Pepco’s hands.

    Cuba Campaign Planning Meeting
    6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

    The Medicare for All team is organizing an ongoing campaign to push to \r
    end the medical blockade of Cuba. This blockade is impacting Cubans’ \r
    ability to get medicine and preventing Cuba from producing enough COVID \r
    vaccines to vaccinate the Global South. Join us to help stop this \r
    blockade. For more information, find our slack channel \r

    Medicare 4 All Working Group Biweekly Meeting (Aug. 15) | #M4A
    6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

    Democratic Socialists are fighting to make single-payer Medicare for All healthcare a reality.

    JOIN US

    Help us fight to replace our fractured and broken health system with a unified Medicare for All system.

    In\r
    order to get our politicians to buck their billionaire donors and side \r
    with the majority, we have to threaten them with a mass political \r
    movement. But the movement we need cannot be built overnight.

    That’s\r
    why we need each and every person to get involved. Winning Medicare for\r
    All will mean establishing a piece of real democratic socialism and \r
    building a broader working-class movement to take on the elite and the \r
    billionaire class.
