Hold The Line – Documentary Screening


The Political Education Committee and the Labor Branch of the Twin Cities Democratic Socialists of America are excited to invite you to a screening of the documentary, Hold the Line, about the 2022 Minneapolis educator strike. The film follows the staff at Ella Baker School as they walk the picket line day after day to demand better schools and better jobs (see the movie trailer below). Interviews with dozens of educators while they are on the line draws an intimate portrait of what it’s like to walk off the job with solidarity and determination. The screening will be followed by a Q&A and discussion with the director and the audience.

Register here! tinyurl.com/HoldtheLineFeb24

The screening will take place in the screening room of the Minneapolis Central Library in Room S-280 on the second floor.

Environmental Justice Group (f/k/a East Phillips Urban Farm Group)

The Environmental Justice group meets every other week on Monday at 7p.

Join us to discuss how best to support the residents and realize this environmental and economic justice vision.

This group’s meetings are on Zoom, and occasionally in person.

1:30 PM – 2:30 PM
Public Hearing to Support Rideshare Drivers

Minneapolis City Council has a public hearing scheduled regarding three proposed minimum compensation models for rideshare drivers. Model A is the only option that would guarantee that drivers are paid above minimum wage for every trip.

Show up and demand that Minneaplis closes the loophole that prevents Uber and Lyft drivers from earning a minimum wage. This is a public hearing with testimony, and it would be great for DSA to show up as community members to say that as rideshare users, we support Model A

6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
