Democratic Socialists of America

In the Harington Style Branches, we do not discuss organizing; we discuss the drafting of a coherent Socialist platform.

The format is an open discussion, usually in someone's living room, with beers, wine and crackers and discus for 3 or 4 hours, a topic that would be implemented once in power.

A topic of discussion where you can contribute is Reinventing the World after COVID.
