DSA and YDS chapters organize around a variety of issues based on local priorities, especially labor solidarity and anti-austerity work. However, the national office provides resources and support for the main activist priority of the organization:
The Bernie Sanders Campaign
- DSA locals around the country are supporting Bernie Sanders' campaign to win the nomination for President in the Democratic Party. This is a grassroots campaign to start a political revolution in this country that will continue long after the 2016 campaign is over. DSA is telling America that #WeNeedBernie to make the democratic socialist movement strong.
