Communications Comrade Cotillion and Micah’s 30th Birthday Party!

December 16, 2017 @ 8:00 pm UTC+0

Are you angry or about the terrible tax bill and just need to drink, dance, and escape from this crumbling, messed up world for a night? Do you want to help the CDSA communications working group pay for projects and equipment that will allow us to spread the message of beautiful, beautiful socialism to the masses? Are you just a friend of Micah Uetricht and want to party with him on his 30th birthday before he heads back to the frozen tundra of Montreal?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, come to the First Annual Communications Working Group Comrade Cotillion And Also Micah Uetricht’s Birthday Party!

Other reasons you should come this very dope party:
-The newly formed CDSA Jazz Band will be playing their very first gig! (I’m not sure if they have a name yet, but please comment below with any good socialist/jazz name suggestions)
-There will be Malort (and other drinks too like Lacroix and Old Style.)
-After the jazz band, we’ll have a DJ playing throughout the night. So be prepared to get your dance on.
-You’ll get to hang out with fellow socialists (and friends of Micah) in a casual, fun setting. If you’re new or on-the-edge about joining the DSA this is the perfect opportunity to come and meet us and find out what we’re all about. We’re cool!

We ask that you donate 5$ at the door.

All money raised at this party will go towards the Communications Working Group. Projects that this will help fund:
-Midwest Socialist: A new regional DSA newsletter coming in both print and digital media. I’ve seen a mock up of the first issue, and folx, it’s kickass.
-A new run of Talkin’ Socialism, our CDSA podcast. We’ve got an awesome team producing some great episodes on CDSA activism and the fight to build socialism in Chicago.
-Organizing a Hackathon in the coming months and putting the bright minds of our members to work building digital tools that will allow us to become a more streamlined and efficient organization.
-Equipment for our event team. There’s a lot of exciting stuff happening in Chicago politics and leftist groups right now and we’d like to share that excitement with the rest of the world. But to do this we need good sound and video recording equipment!
-Video projects. We’ve got some talented comrades working on films about Lift the Ban, Healthcare, and a Dues Renewal Project. Exciting Stuff.

We had a big, productive year as a Working Group in 2017 and we’re looking to get even bigger and productive-ier in 2018.
