d@w STAFF


Maria Carnemolla, Co-Managing & Media Director

Maria has been on staff since 2013. She obtained her MS in Management from The College of St. Elizabeth in New Jersey. She has over 20 years of leadership experience working in higher education and nonprofit organizations. Her passion and enthusiasm for Leftism began at a young age and continues to this day. She has served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Left Forum and is also active in her community and children’s schools. Maria is dedicated to working on moving to a more democratic economic system, one that puts people before profits.



Liz Phillips, Co-Managing & Communications Director

Liz has been on staff since 2018. For the 2 years prior, she was a volunteer co-leader of a d@w Study Group in Los Angeles where she focused on content production and outreach. She obtained her BFA in Technical Theatre and Stage Management from the College of Santa Fe and in her subsequent 10 years of experience in entertainment (theater, dance, concerts, film, and advertising) she held mostly management / project leadership or creative / story-telling positions. She is thrilled to now put these skills to work advocating for the world she would like to see, increasing economic (and thus political) democracy for all through the proliferation of worker cooperatives.

    Hello! I just bought the Professor’s book Understanding Socialism and have been a big fan of his for 3 years now! Great stuff!
    We’d love to have Richard and/or anyone else from your organization attend the Zoom meeting below. You could also send us information on your stances on this issue as well!
    We hope that you can participate in some way!
    Thank you and keep up your great work!
    Sincerely, Dan Hay aka Jaammes Taylor on Facebook

    Hello friends! I am novice at Zoom meetings but I’m going to give it a whirl!
    I am hosting a Zoom meeting discussion focusing on Progressives Strategies. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday May 12 7pm-7:40pm part 1 and part 2 will be 7:40-8:20pm.The free Zoom only allows for 40 minutes per meeting so I scheduled one right after the other to give us more time to talk.

    The purpose of this meeting is to voice opinions and strategize on how the Progressive Movement should proceed for the next 5 years and more.
    For example: should we form a 3rd party or continue to try to push the Democratic Party further Left? If we did want a 3rd party should we urge everyone to join the Green Party, National Progressive Party, etc., etc. OR form a brand new party?
    There’s lots to think about!
    So below are the 2 Zoom meeting links that you can click on after you have downloaded the Zoom app to your device !
    Hope to see you there!
    Sincerely, Dan/Jaammes

    Part 1 7PM

    Part 2 7:40pm
    https://zoom.us/j/97498174154?pwd=NEN1MERmcHRaOGlaSnNvNTFQU1JwUT09

    I will send this out to other Facebook friends as well and email
