SPUSA Plan of Action campaigns
The Socialist Party USA currently has five “Plan of Action” campaigns. These campaigns originate from specific issues that our National Convention decided we should prioritize and focus on. They are national campaigns coordinated by commissions of Socialist Party members from across the country and organized by our locals, state parties, and at-large members.
As a local of the Socialist Party USA, we strive to bring the Plan of Action campaigns into Central New Jersey and connect them to our work.
The five Plan of Action campaigns are: Eco-Socialism, Labor/Living Wage, Prison Industrial Complex, Anti-War, and (new for 2016!) Housing Justice/Anti-Gentrification

On October 17th, the Socialist Party USA’s 2015 National Convention nominated former SPUSA Co-Chair Mimi Soltysik and Milwaukee labor activist Angela Walker as our 2016 presidential ticket.
Regardless of rigged ballot access laws, the Soltysik/Walker campaign is a national initiative that is putting forward radical, democratic socialist principles and positions. We look forward to supporting the campaign in New Jersey and organizing events with Mimi and Angela throughout the election cycle.

15 Now NJ
Endorsed by the Socialist Party of New Jersey – Statement of Endorsement
Throughout the country the fight for a $15 minimum wage has begun. From coast to coast, workers are rising up and demanding a living wage.
Hey, New Jersey, now is the time to fight, to come together and to win! The Garden State is ripe for a $15 minimum wage. The seeds have been planted. But we need to nurture this growing movement with the energy of a sustained, bottom-up push for a $15 minimum wage. It’s time to take to the streets and to rock the State Assembly, to demand they act to guarantee a living wage for New Jersey residents.
The only way we can win when confronted with the wealth and power of big business is if we organize! We must construct a grassroots campaign that brings together our whole community. From neighborhoods, unions, and student groups to local activists, and community organizations to participate in meetings, mass rallies, and strikes to demand $15 NOW!
