Current Campaigns

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 priorities of the organization:

Standing Up to Hate Emergency Response

  • In response to the anti-Mexican, anti-black, anti-Muslim, anti-refugee and general hate-mongering coming from Donald Trump and the way he is creating space for racist extremists to organize, DSA local chapters are reaching out to immigrant rights organizations, mosques and others who may be targets for violence. We are mobilizing to spread the message that hate only creates more hate.

The Bernie Sanders Campaign

  • DSA is proud of our local chapters around the country that supported Bernie Sanders' campaign to win the nomination for President in the Democratic Party. This was a grassroots "independent expenditure" campaign to start a political revolution in this country that will continue long after the 2016 campaign is over. DSA was telling America that #WeNeedBernie to make the democratic socialist movement strong.
