Steering Committee


Stefanie G is a teacher and works to spread socialist, feminist, and anti-colonialist ideas through great art. Her mother started calling her a socialist when she was about 14, but she didn't return to those youthful truths until recently.



Political Education Director

We are electing a new political education director in February 2018.



Fundraising Chair

Michael works with computers by day, but dreams of socialism by night (and on weekends). He worked in academia and learned a few obscure research-funding rules, so he pretends that makes him a good Treasurer. He hasn't (and likely won't) read Das Kapital. But he did read some Marx while attending a bourgeois university.


Chapel Hill

Our Chapel Hill community engagement lead made a similar calculation as our secretary.


Our Durham community engagement lead made a similar calculation as our secretary.


Tom Neas joined DSA the day after the 2016 election, and became active in organizing after moving to Greensboro to work as a copy editor. Tom lives with his partner (herself a vital organizer in the branch) and their two cats.


Reed Schrad does software design at a healthcare company for money, but he's more interested in building a movement for justice and dignity in Raleigh. His vision for the Raleigh branch is an organization that is flexible enough to mobilize quickly and persistent enough to leave a lasting impact on the Capital City.


Ryan is a karaoke enthusiast who works in higher education for a living. Other interests include housing justice, the work of Raymond Williams, and navigating the byzantine scheduling system of the Forsyth County public library system. His earnest hope is that Winston-Salem will someday live up to the legacy of Local 22.
