The DSC has a Coordinating Committee that oversees the campaign and member organizations that shape our work and participate in Working Groups and Local Chapters. The DSC hosts ongoing monthly calls for DSC members to participate in planning and decision-making on our collective work and to share updates about what is happening in your local communities. DSC continues to reach out to organizations and individuals to join the campaign.
