Electoral Working Group
CT DSA’s electoral work focuses on growing the base for socialism in Connecticut, empowering working people, and creating multi-racial-working-class campaigns. We work to elect socialist representatives who will use their votes and the powers of their office to lift up the demands of the working class and materially support Central CT DSA’s work in the areas of housing, health, economic justice, decarceration, racial and gender equity, and radical queer liberation.
A Central CT DSA endorsement constitutes the support of the entire membership – including canvass, phonebank, text, and relational field support, and the mobilization of our local and statewide membership.
We view electioneering — especially our canvassing operations — as an opportunity to build popular support for our policy goals and movement. Thus we encourage only candidates comfortable with the entire DSA platform to apply for our endorsement.
