Portside Report

After the 2017 DSA National Convention, I was asked by Portside (via Ethan Young) to write a top-line report on what I thought about the convention. The Bernie Bump was in full swing, and I wanted the new NPOC to focus on consolidating the bump so that we could "intentionally" grow more (I did not use that word the, now it all the rage). The 2017-2019 NPC turned out to be the worst one we ever had. We grew a lot, but not because of anything they did.
