2017 People's Summit Housing and Travel Support

DSA is committed to providing housing and travel support for those DSA members who need it to attend the People's Summit. You donation can bring all of us together. We are suggesting a $40 a night donation to cover housing. We pay for housing out of our scholarship funds. The more people that pay for their housing, the more money that frees up for scholarship money for those that need it for travel costs. If you cannot afford $40 a night, please consider donating as much as you can in the "Other" option.
