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 Saturday, August 26, 2023.


This year, we plan to honor the contributions of:

  • The Feminist Women’s Health Center, an abortion clinic fighting to keep its doors open while Georgia’s six-week ban remains in place
  • WRFG-FM, Atlanta’s progressive noncommercial community radio station, which is celebrating its 50th year on the air.

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.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Also, we look forward to celebrating Teamsters 728's impactful year as we are joined by guest speaker Elizabeth Laster, part time UPS package handler and Union Steward.
