Join Us

Occupy Wall Street and the 2012 elections demonstrated that we stand at the beginning of a new political era. But the progressive movement faces a crisis of leadership. The Right uses red-baiting against even the most modest of reforms which might control corporate power. Many progressives fear identification with the “s” word and thus run towards the center, inherently unable to name the root cause of our economic inequality as the capitalist system. In this ideological vacuum the entire political debate shifts to the right.

The Left must create a new vision and a new mission rooted in a new sense of purpose. Democratic socialists have an historic opportunity and responsibility to play a central role in the founding of the next Left, and DSA is prepared to meet this challenge.

We invite you to join us in this effort! All members of DSA receive a subscription to our quarterly magazine, Democratic Left and automatic access to DSA's (Virtual) Little Red Schoolhouse, our activist webinar training series.
