This time we will be taking our message to the Spring Branch area where there’s another sliver of cross over between Fran and Ali’s district. We will be staging from the Whataburger on Silber Rd. See y’all there!
At next week’s Houston DSA Reading Group, we will be discussing Vivek Chibber’s recent article published in Jacobin Magazine called “Our Road to Power.” It is available online here.
The article discusses organizational tactics and historical lessons that DSA should heed in its current activities and should lead to lively discussion and debate.
Hope to see you there!

We in Houston DSA will be attending the March for Black Women in a show of solidarity, to lend our ears to voices that for too long have gone unheard. The following is a description of the purpose of the march, as posted on the March for Black Women website :
Angela Davis once said,
“I AM NO LONGER ACCEPTING THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE. I AM CHANGING THE THINGS I CANNOT ACCEPT.”
In that spirit, we are calling on every Black woman in the Houston area and our allies to change a system that is no longer acceptable or viable for Black women. We strive to unite Black women from every walk of life and demographic to rise together in all our diversity, face our common oppressors, and denounce the systems and communities that deny us our civil and human rights and relegate us to political backseats.
We are also coming together to celebrate the sisterhood, struggles, and accomplishments of the unique space that Black women hold in society. We affirm the position of Black women in politics and ensure our representation is rightfully increased.
We are a power like no other when we are joined together. We have suffered the most heinous maltreatment in this country, and we are still here. Standing. Proudly. Let us gather together to celebrate one another. There is no one that understands us like us. We will celebrate the African Diaspora of womanhood in all the ways it exists. We will experience the music and poetry of sisters from different perspectives and engage in the advancement of Black lives.
This event is Black woman-centered, but we welcome all allies in support of Black women. Be mindful that this is for us.
