2015 Convention Registration


FOR FULL INFORMATION ABOUT THE 2015 CONVENTION CLICK HERE 

 

ONLINE REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED DUE TO LIMITED REMAINING SPACE.

If you are still interested in registering, please contact David Duhalde at dduhalde(a)dsausa.org

 

Our convention, November 13 - 15, will be at a private retreat hotel outside a major city because we want to build a strong DSA community and give us the opportunity to focus on our Socialist Strategy and strengthening our socialist organizing skills.

Because of this, your registration price is ALL-INCLUSIVE. You will not have to pay for food or a hotel room, it is already included in the registration price. We have negotiated a great rate for the hotel rooms, but notice that if you compare the price to past DSA conventions it will seem very high because in the past, you had to pay for your hotel room separately. We have arranged for a sliding scale of registration rates so that you can choose the option which is best for you.

Each attendee must register individually.

The low-income registration rate is subsidized and we encourage only those with real financial need to register at that rate.

Please note that this registration fee is non-refundable.

Film Discussion: The Free State of Jones

June 11, 2017
· 19 rsvps

Join Victoria Bynum, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History, Texas State University, San Marcos, to discuss The Free State of Jones. STX Entertainment bought the film rights to Bynum's book of the same title. She also served as a consultant and appears in a cameo scene. What was the Free State of Jones? During the Civil War, an armed band of deserters led by Newt Knight, a non-slaveholding white farmer, took to the swamps of southeastern Mississippi and battled against the Confederacy in an uprising popularly known as “The Free State of Jones.” Joining Newt in this rebellion was Rachel, a slave. From their relationship, there developed a controversial mixed-race community that endured long after the Civil War had ended. View the film here for $6 before the discussion. 8 ET/7 CT/6 MT/5 PT.
