We invite you to join us for our annual fundraiser dinner! Unlike other DSA chapters, Detroit DSA has never asked for local dues from our members. The Douglass-Debs Dinner is the one time each year in which we engage in fundraising for our chapter. The money we raise supports all of our activities for the next year. Honorees include UAW President Dennis Williams and Michigan United Dinner Co-Chairs: UAW Vice President Cindy Estrada and Michigan AFL-CIO President Ron Bieber John Nichols, political editor for The Nation magazine and frequent commentator on MSNBC, will be the keynote speaker at this year's Frederick Douglass-Eugene V. Debs Dinner. He is an exceptional speaker with a wealth of knowledge of both politics and socialism. Entertainment: Jon Reynolds and Frank Koscielski Tickets: $40 per person, $75 for a Patron ticket, and $350 for a table of ten. Tickets will be held at the door. See further info at Facebook web page above.
