    10 January 2020 Panel on US Political Culture Under Trump

    We would like to thank everyone who attended our panel on Friday and helped make it such a success! We had amazing attendance for our panelists Ajay, Jim, Jay, and David who spoke so eloquently on the topic at hand and providing direction for future conversations. We are hoping that our speaker series continues to be successful as the year continues and are excited to bring many interesting topics to the table, both in Halifax and in our other regions in the near future! 

    If you would like to propose a topic for a future panel or if you are interested in hosting a panel closer to your home, please contact Riley Nielson at

    Atlantic Provinces November Update

    DA Atlantic Provinces would like to thank everyone who came out last month for our Thanksgiving Potluck and General Meeting, and to give an extra special thank you to Michelle and Geoffery Sinville for hosting us last night! We had a wonderful dinner and look forward to our next event.

    We are in the process of recruiting for two committees: an outreach committee and a Global Primary committee. The outreach committee will work to connect our organization with individuals living outside of the HRM and to build our capacity to best represent them and their needs. The Global Primary committee will work to plan for our March 3rd primary which will be all hands on deck. If you are interested in helping out and/or joining one of these committees, please email Riley Nielson at
