Current Activities


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.

  1. 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:
  1. Weapon safety/Self-Defense programs
  2. First aid
  3. Legal aid
  4. Community organizing
