Help Keep Democratic Left Strong

I hope you are enjoying our Democratic Left blog. The new blog is a continuation of our print magazine, which for a decade longer than DSA’s existence has been a magazine of the Left, deeply rooted in both the principles of democratic socialism and immediate struggles for reform and empowerment.

We know that while our movement needs to learn from our past, we must also look to the future. That is why we launched this blog. Our values are widely shared in this country, but we need to spread our ideas much more widely if we are to utilize the window of opportunity provided by the increased politicization and openness of people in the United States. Only then can we build a movement powerful enough to change our entire economic system from one of exploitation to one of cooperation.

Will you join me in celebrating Democratic Left? Your contribution will see your name or your labor blog listed on the pages of both this blog and the Democratic Left magazine! Your special contribution will help us to meet the challenges of covering issues in-depth in the print magazine and up-to-the-minute on the Democratic Left blog.

Please contribute now to help keep Democratic Left strong.

In solidarity,

Maria Svart

DSA National Director
