About LVDSA's Electoral Committee
Why should a socialist organization engage in electoral work? Electoral campaigns can promote popular demands and force the establishment to finally pay attention to working people. They can also politicize and organize people, stretch people’s vision of the possible, and involve whole communities in the fight for better lives. An organization that can credibly threaten to run and win elections has a stronger hand in negotiations with politicians than one that can’t. It’s time to get organized!
