In recent years, tenant organizing has emerged as a major terrain of class struggle. Concentration of ownership in the hands of corporate landlords, inflation, and the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic have heightened the hardship tenants face across the country. In a housing system where profit matters more than our quality of life, we need a tenant movement to effectively combat the landlord class, secure decent housing for all, and build the necessary power to bring about socialism.
For these reasons, DSA-SD has prioritized tenant union organizing. Our Housing Justice Working Group (HJWG) has embarked on a major campaign that aims to organize tenants throughout San Diego County. We will knock on doors, forge relationships with neighbors, and set up […]
We demand that all charges against local activists from San Diego and Los Angeles defending our community from violent far-right extremists be dropped! We denounce the unprecedented conspiracy charges and the unreasonably high bail against transgender activists.
On January 9, 2021, violent far-right extremists went to Pacific Beach to disrupt and terrorize the local community – but local activists counter-demonstrated to show that hate is not welcome in our communities. In response, not only did SDPD use force solely against the counter-demonstrators, but now almost a year later is going after local activists alleging criminal conspiracy based largely on allegations of wearing black and liking social media posts. This is obscene and […]

AB 1400 or CalCare is California’s single payer bill. It would create a single tax-funded health insurer that covers all Californians for all types of care without out-of-pocket costs.
Supporters of AB 1400 are organizing a day of action in Sacramento and across the state on January 8th. In San Diego we will be holding a car caravan of supporters (staying in our cars limits the risk of spreading COVID). We’ll gather at the north end of the Zoo parking lot near the Therapeutic Recreation Services Building at 3325 Zoo Drive in San Diego. Then we’ll drive downtown and circle Assemblymember Weber’s office on Front Street.
Please RSVP and join us on January 8th at 11:30!
In October, San Diego Harassment Grievance Officers (HGOs) were notified by the Sacramento HGO of a potential harassment grievance against Ricky M. under Resolution 33. Three separate individuals eventually filed grievances against Ricky M. with the San Diego HGOs alleging verbal and physical abusive behavior, inappropriate sexualized comments, emotional manipulation, dishonesty, and intimidation. Due to strict confidentiality commitments made to the reporting parties and Ricky M., further details of the harassment will not be shared publicly, but the parties reported that the harassment occurred at various points between 2017 and 2021 and caused them harm which led to filing these grievances.
Based upon the evidence and testimony presented to the HGOs by the three reporting parties, Ricky M., and witness […]
