Transcript The new right means we need a newer left... If you're anxious about the growth of the new right, you're not alone. Corporate America and a sophisticated new conservatism have never been stronger. Feminists, liberals, trade unionists and minorities have suffered tragic defeats. But recently progressives have begun to take action. . .and that's where the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee comes into the story. DSOC has been working for six years to give progressives the intellectual ammunition, the fighting spirit and the sense of vision we all need to push America closer to our ideals: • DSOC members, led by Michael Harrington, played a big part at the recent Democratic Party Convention in Memphis to build support for resolutions opposing cutbacks in domestic social programs and increases in de- fencse spending. • DSOC members launched the DEMOCRATIC AGENDA project to hold the Carter Administration and the Democratic Congress to the 1976 Platform. • Active DSOC groups of women, trade unionists, blacks, Hispanics, youth, and academics are working to bring Socialist ideas to the American people.. .and to educate a new generation of American Socialists. This month the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee is holding its fourth national convention in Houston. We hope you will join with us as we address the issues that face our country: * The New Right Assault on Feminism * Fighting Cutbacks in Social Spending * Concentration in the Energy Industry * Disarmament and Human Rights * Decent Health Care for All Americans Join Congressman Ronald Dellums, Joyce Miller, President of the Coalition of Labor Union Women, Michael Harrington, National Chair of the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee, and 200 delegates from all over the United States.
