🍽 Tickets Available for 2023 Douglass Debs Dinner 🍽

Douglass Debs Dinner promo image

Each year since our Atlanta DSA chapter formed in 2006–except for a two-year pandemic gap–we have invited Atlanta’s progressive community to our Douglass-Debs awards dinner, to help us honor outstanding role models and leaders, celebrate our accomplishments during the previous year, and enjoy an evening of comradeship. Last year’s dinner resumed this tradition with great success.


In keeping with our tribute to organized labor, we will host the 2023 Douglass-Debs Dinner in the IBEW Hall Auditorium at 153 Richardson Street SW in downtown Atlanta on Friday, August 26, 2023.


The dinner is a great opportunity to meet with other community activists and hear from inspiring speakers. Ticket sales and patron contributions will raise funds for our coalition partners, local community organizing, and labor union strike support. Reduced-cost tickets will be available for students and other low-income comrades. For more information contact us at [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you there!


🌹 General Meeting 🌹

This meeting will be held in person, with an informal potluck/social starting at NOON, and business running from 1:00-3:00 PM. So bring your favorite dish, and a friend that's curious about getting involved with DSA.

📝 Fill Out the 2023 Labor Survey 📝

Labor Survey promo image

At the 2022 Atlanta DSA Chapter Convention, members decided to prioritize our Chapter's labor work. We are building the labor movement by showing up for workers on the picket line, building relationships with rank-and-file union members, and helping our own members organize their workplaces.


But to do this, we need your help! Fill out our 2023 Labor Survey to tell us about yourself, your workplace, and the ways you'd like to help get involved in our work.
