Houston DSA Delegation Statement

Our delegation at the national convention voted overwhelmingly to support the resolution calling for prison abolition. We also endorsed and voted for Danny Fetonte, whom many of us know as an outstanding labor organizer who has worked hard to build DSA chapters in Texas. We were not aware that his past organizing work included work for CLEAT. We strongly oppose the work of CLEAT and regret that Danny’s work for them was not disclosed to us all before voting.  Moving forward, we defer to the NPC to reach a resolution. We in Houston are particularly aware of the harm caused by police and prisons, and call for the solidarity and support of our comrades as we move forward together.
