Committees

Current list of Committees & Campaigns

Housing Campaign (CHOP)

Safe, stable housing is a universal human right. We’re building working-class power through tenant organizing in the fight against capitalist housing exploitation. CHOP is out here every other Saturday knocking on doors and equipping people to fight their evictions.

 

Defund the Police Campaign (DTP)

The police exist to defend property and the power of the ruling class. They use state violence and mass incarceration to prop up the ruling class and protect property owners.  As socialists, abolishing the police state is essential to our end goal. We work in coalition with our movement to defund the Cleveland police and reinvest in our community.
