Agenda DSA Meeting

Song

to pull our thinking and pulling our act together 
Is the the Green New Deal a good focus for our organizing efforts?

1. How is everything mentioned in the platform connected to the Green New Deal? Just how important is it? 

2. What will have to happen for the Green New Deal to get implemented?  

What will make a difference locally? Change local consciousness  to support the national and international efforts?

3. Thinking in terms of the following and local equivalents what will we come up against? The fossil fuel monopolies? other major corporations? military? the media? 

4. Who can we ally with to make things happen? 

5. How about the Alexandria O Cortez and Bernie Sanders group? How about the establishment Democrats? How about the Sun Rise Movement? How about the Extinction Rebellion? The EOC3?  The CTUIR environmentalist? The Walla Walla area DSA and Sun Risers? The Blue Mountain Marchers? The Local progressive Democrats? 

Summarize where we're at with the platform. 
Hand out the Seattle Platform, Pat's platform notes, Ron's rewrite. Acknowledge what we've pretty much decided. 
Ask to put together a committee to write it up for the next meeting and put it to a vote then.
