Tampa Democratic Socialists of America
Tampa DSA is an official chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America. We believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few.
We are a political and activist organization, not a party. DSA members use a variety of tactics, from legislative to direct action, to fight for reforms that empower working people.
To learn more about who we are, visit our About Us page.
We, the members of Tampa Democratic Socialists of America (TDSA), have developed a list of demands in response to the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court. This decision is an affront to bodily autonomy and democracy, and poses a mortal threat to the health and well-being of the working class. In order to help protect our communities, we have compiled the following list of demands of our elected officials and community members in positions of power, and call on others to sign on and join us in de-legitimizing this ruling:
When: Friday June 9th, doors at 6:30pm, screenings 7-9:15pm

ONE SINGS, THE OTHER DOESN'T (1977) by Agnès Varda
"Agnès Varda’s unsung feminist anthem is both a buoyant chronicle of a transformative friendship and an empowering vision of universal sisterhood. When seventeen-year-old Pauline (Valérie Mairesse) helps struggling mother of two Suzanne (Thérèse Liotard) procure the money for an abortion, a deep bond forms between the two, one that endures over the course of more than a decade as each searches for her place in the world—encountering the dawning of the women’s movement, dreamy boho musical numbers, and an Iranian adventure along the way. Initially divisive for its sunny, idealized view of female liberation, One Sings, the Other Doesn’t now seems all the more radical—and all the more vital—for its unabashedly utopian spirit. "
BLACK PANTHERS (1968) by Agnès Varda
"Agnès Varda turns her camera on an Oakland demonstration against the imprisonment of activist and Black Panthers co-founder Huey P. Newton. In addition to evincing Varda’s fascination with her adopted surroundings and her empathy, this perceptive short is also a powerful political statement."
After the screenings we will have a panel discussion with representatives from TBAF, TDSA, and the Ybor microcinema about healthcare.
