We are excited to launch our new ORGANIZE! series. In this ongoing series, we'll be talking to working people who have had enough of this rigged system and who have taken it upon themselves to band together and fight back. In a world where so many avenues for political change have just been swallowed up, colonized, and defanged by the ruling class, we want to see where working-class folks are turning. From the Poor People’s Campaign to the Catholic Worker Movement, from labor unions to the Carolina Workers Collective, from radical indigenous collectives to the Sunrise Movement … we want to see what organizations workers are joining, or building from the ground up.  We want to talk about the campaigns they’re launching and the battles they are waging to claim a better future for working people everywhere. 

To kick off our ORGANIZE! series, we’re going to talk to folks who have found a home and a cause worth fighting for in the Democratic Socialists of America. In Part I we talk to Jen from the DSA-Eugene chapter in Oregon. We talk about growing up poor and the life-saving power of communal solidarity. We also talk about what brought Jen to DSA and about the organizing work that she and the other members of DSA-Eugene are doing.
