As close as any national political convention will ever get to Sonoma County, the DSAconvention--

--will be held Friday, October 25-Monday, October 28, in Oakland (technically Emeryville, a suburb of Oakland) at the Hilton Garden Inn. Registration is $195, and room-sharing is being coordinated; there will also be carpooling if someone besides me comes down from Sonoma County.
Here's a synopsis of DSA's goals:

  • decrease the influence of money in politics
  • empower ordinary people in workplaces and the economy
  • restructure gender and cultural relationships to be more equitable.
