The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. DSA’s members are building progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly socialist presence in American communities and politics.
DSA is the major organization on the American left with an all-embracing moral vision, systematic social analysis, and political praxis rooted in the quest for radical democracy, social freedom, and individual liberties.
Socialistas Democráticos de América
Es una organización de activistas, no un partido político. Los Socialistas Democráticos de América (DSA) luchan, entre otros objetivos, para promover un seguro de salud para todos, combatir la guerra en Iraq y la guerra contra los pobres. DSA lucha para promover alternativas democráticas contra el poder de las corporaciones transnacionales y tiene un papel central en el avance de las luchas para obtener un país progresista. Esta lucha la mantienen no solamente líderes de prominencia, pero aun más importante, también por el trabajo de los activistas de DSA en las comunidades, los centros de trabajo y en los colegios y universidades.
To be recognized as an official DSA organizing committee, you need at least five DSA members in good standing. This is one of many steps in becoming an official DSA local. Download the organizing committee application and mail it in, or email info (a) dsausa.org with the list.
Starting a discussion group is important for new DSA or YDS chapters. Download this short list of manageable articles about democratic socialism to help your group launch.
The Tea Party exploded onto the national debate by disrupting Congressional town hall meetings with scare mongering about health care reform. You can bet that with the continuing debate about the deficit, the right-wing will be out in force again, because this is a tried and true way to reach elected officials and force them to listen to their constituents. It’s very important, therefore, that we make our presence known as well. Ideally, we can even take back the debate. The best part? You really only need a few people to pull this off, and it can be really fun.
