Education Committee

Chair Reports: Draft outlines for the establishment and development of District educational programs have been reviewed, and a final outline shall be proposed and voted on at the next meeting on the 7th of August. Outlines included the centralizing of educational work in the District, establishment of multiple programs rather than a singular one, and the need for continued support for Comrades at the local level in order to advance their foundational knowledge of Marxist-Leninist theory and praxis, as well as party history and functions.

Tenant Organizing Initiative

District Organizer Reports: All areas of Party operation in the District are facing an impending crisis with the end of the eviction moratorium. Analyses on the question of housing are being pushed forward and shall be published, as well as coordination with local formations to begin taking part in actions wherever possible; supporting already-existing campaigns, etc.

PRO Act Initiative

District Organizer: As the Virginia District of the Party, it is our responsibility to put pressure on Mark Warner. He is one of three Democrats currently holding up this legislation that would effectively overturn Virginia’s reactionary “right to work” laws and render historic protections to labor organizing throughout the country.

District Secretary: A key aspect of our work in this area is for club and collective leadership to coordinate their local formations and facilitate direct action as possible; using resist.bot, attending protests when possible, etc.

The next Executive Committee meeting shall be held on July 25th

The Secretary shall report on it to the District on July 30th
