2017 NPC Candidate
Local Chapter: Central New Jersey
I’m Christian Bowe, I’m 25 and live in Central New Jersey and work in New York City.
Why I'm Running
-to continue building DSA up into a mass political organization that covers every part of the country -making DSA a truly multi-tendency organization that has Marxist representation on the NPC -to get DSA to back a national campaign we all can work together and unite around -to put together a clearer platform of where our points of agreements are and what our vision is -to continue popularizing both DSA and socialist ideas through digital campaigns.
My Previous Political Work
I was elected Central NJ’s first chapter chair when we became a chapter, I primarily run social media committee for national, I’m on the internationalism and religious socialism working groups. I help national out with press, digital campaigns and outreach for campaigns and candidates we endorse. I’ve helped national pursue a distributed organizing model, shift to a 50 state strategy and become invested in digital organizing. I led most of our record breaking recruiting pushes and surges. As chapter chair for CNJ, I helped put together and launch Medicare for All and sanctuary county campaigns. I’ve also helped mentor a lot of new chapter leaders within the organization.
My Vision for DSA
-become a 50,000 member organization in 50 states. -empower local chapters in places where socialist organizations typically don’t. -open up internal democracy and caucus structures. -pursue a deeper commitment to internationalism. -have a far larger influence in the labor movement, community building and electoral politics particularly producing our own candidates.
