“The act of being there when people desperately need support—not necessarily with an expectation or an ask, except ‘What can we do?’—is crucial to organizing. Rather than operating with transactional expectations or parachuting in to curry political favor or coordinate photo-ops, DSA Los Angeles is doing the hard, unglamorous work of solidarity. It’s exactly as it should be: after all, we can’t expect to build a mass movement or build meaningful connections to the broader working class, if we treat socialism like a product to be pitched and sold.”
