We cannot live on organizing alone. Sometimes you just need to get out, listen to some music, and support your comrades.

Norris Court, a local band fronted by our very own Grace O., will play alongside Dear Mr. Watterson and Tom Danks.

The show will be at Communication, an important hub for local artists to share a sober and safe place. The venue has been an important asset to us as host of several of our meetings. Donations are very welcome.

Let’s show both Grace and Communication some support!

Past Events
Friday, December 6th — 12:00pm - 2:00pm

Our friends in YCAT are demanding that Chancellor Blank and the administration:

  • Power the university exclusively with renewable energy by 2050 and derive all electrical power from renewable resources by 2030;
  • Open up meetings of the Sustainability Advisory Council to students of the university to allow more student involvement and representation in meeting these goals; and
  • Have a concrete plan of action from the Sustainability Advisory Council by the end of January 2021 to reach these energy goals.

This is not a DSA-sponsored event, but it can’t hurt to get out and support our local youth climate activists.

Friday, November 29th — 12:00pm - 1:30pm

The US Air Force sees Madison’s Truax Field as a preferred base for the F-35 combat jet. The jets are so much louder than current military aircraft that routine training operations would make several working class neighborhoods near Truax unlivable. Additionally, working class neighborhoods and schools in the radius just outside the intolerable zone would suffer extreme increases in noise and concomitant psychological stress.

While Madison DSA has yet to vote on whether to oppose the Air Force’s F-35 plans, several comrades have been active in the opposition. That opposition is rooted in the convergence of several DSA values. First, the neighborhoods affected are composed of working class folks who are disproportionately people of color. Second, existing Air Force operations at Truax have poisoned the local neighborhoods’ water with PFAS. Third, the F-35 is part of the ruling class, imperialistic/militaristic plan to impose their market-based version of “freedom” on the world. Finally, the status quo of militarism is extraordinarily carbon-intensive, rendering impossible any solution to the impending climate catastrophe.

If you can come out on Friday and want to make yourself heard, feel free to join the Safe Skies Clean Water Coalition!
