The Los Angeles Local was asked to represent the Socialist Party USA at the JSA Convention in Torrance, CA. The Local had the chance to engage in a dialogue with JSA representatives throughout the day, answering questions about democratic socialism and the Socialist Party USA Statement of Principles and Platform. The students were remarkably well-informed about the Socialist Party USA’s history and incredibly enthusiastic during the question and answer period of the presentation. It was quite an inspiring experience for the L.A. Local!
In Washington DC, the Socialist Party tabled at the the Junior State of America’s Midwest/Ohio/Southeast Congress. Metro DC member David Gaines was joined by Greg Pason for the event. This was the 2nd of 3 conferences held in DC on Feb 8th, 15th and the 22nd.
