As of August 2016 the Chicago Socialist Party is actively involved in several organizing campaigns in our communities. The primary SPUSA national campaign the Chicago local has adopted has been the Housing/Gentrification campaign, however we continue to organize around any and all relevant injustices the people currently face.
- Anti-Gentrification – Tenant Union Organization and Community Land Trust organization.
- We are currently in the process of organizing in Pilsen to create a community center run by the people and also intend to raise funds for clothing/supply donation to the local homeless for winter.
2. People’s Defense Program
- We are planning to ensure the safety of the working class against armed right-wing fanatics by developing a cohesive and comprehensive program revolving around 4 principle areas:
- Weapon safety/Self-Defense programs
- First aid
- Legal aid
- Community organizing
