The Advocacy Committee is charged with identifying local, state, and national issues that align with the DDS vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, gender and racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships. The Advocacy Committee will seek community input, provide information, develop consensus, and coordinate advocacy efforts, in collaboration with the Media and Outreach Committee and the Education Committee. For issues identified as long-term priorities, the Advocacy Committee may establish subcommittees to facilitate continued progress. The Advocacy Committee will seek to create multiracial intersectional coalitions, working in partnership with existing local groups and organizations already working to address disparities and promote justice.
