In partnership with the DSA for Bernie campaign, we wrapped up our largest Week of Action yet in January!

From Jan. 13-19, more than 60 DSA chapters across the country held town halls, canvasses, watch parties and phone/text banking parties in support of Sen. Bernie Sanders and Medicare for All. In fact, many chapters even held more than one event! This was the first time the DSA for Medicare for All campaign joined forces with the DSA for Bernie campaign, and it was inspiring and motivating to see the power and strength of our movement.

With the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primaries in sight, we need to keep the pressure on. You can still get involved by volunteering directly with the Sanders campaign, or see our organizing guide for information and resources on how to build a local Medicare for All coalition in your area.

A huge thank you to every chapter that participated and every individual who told their friends, neighbors and community members about why Bernie is the only Medicare for All candidate. This is how we win!

Here's a look at the activities and events some chapters hosted during the Week of Action. You can see the #DSAforBernie hashtag on Twitter for even more.
