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 local chapters around the country are supporting Bernie Sanders' campaign to win the nomination for President in the Democratic Party. This is a grassroots "independent expenditure" 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.

Socialist Caucus at the DNC

July 27, 2016
William Way LGBTQ Center in Philadelphia, PA

The Democratic Socialists of America invites all DNC delegates, members and friends to the Socialist Caucus, featuring:

  • Rahel Biru, Co-Chair of New York DSA and activist in Debbie Medina NY State Senate campaign ;

  • Michael Lighty, Political Director of the National Nurses United, key organizer of The People's Summit;

  • Bob Master, Legislative/Political Director, Communication Workers of America (District 1), Co-Chair New York Working Families Party;

  • Ashley Rodriguez, El Chuco del Norte (El Paso) DSA and Bernie Sanders delegate to the DNC; and

  • Maria Svart, National Director of the Democratic Socialists of America. 

PLEASE NOTE: Cornel West resigned from the Platform Committee this past Tuesday and won’t be attending the Convention in protest against the Sanders’ campaign not filing minority reports, particularly on TPP and the Israeli occupation of the West Bank. We will miss Brother West at the Socialist Caucus, but the other speakers are fantastic (and stay tuned to this page for additional speakers)! Bring your friends and fellow delegates!

This is a free event, but you must register here.
