Support DSA Delegates at the DNC

The Bernie Sanders for president campaign has made it possible for democratic socialism to be taken seriously as a viable alternative to the neoliberal agenda that prioritizes corporate business interests over those of all working people. Bernie has energized generations of political activists who are fed up with establishment politicians, and their impoverished vision of America’s future.

Many of those activists have been elected as delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, July 25-28, including over 50 DSA members. We are asking you to help send DSA delegates to Philadelphia to continue the political revolution.

It’s incredibly expensive to attend the convention, primarily because the Sanders campaign requires delegates to stay at one of their preferred hotels (it’s much easier for the campaign to hold caucus meetings with everyone staying at the same place). Then there’s travel (many of the DSA delegates are flying from Texas) and other out-of-pocket expenses. About a third of our delegates have yet to completely raise their budgets. UPDATE: IN ONE WEEK, NEARLY 50% OF OUR DELEGATES COMPLETED THEIR FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGNS. THANK YOU!

As one of our delegates said, “We were democratic socialists before Bernie make it cool to be one. And we still are!” Please help one or more of these deserving DSA delegates make a difference in Philadelphia, to continue the political revolution.

You know what to do: click on an image or link below to make your contribution today.

Please note that DSA has not made any direct contributions toward any of these campaigns. Rather, we are relying on the solidarity of our members and friends to support individual delegate fundraising efforts. All contributions will be gratefully acknowledged by the delegate. Thank you.
