The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. DSA’s members are building progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly socialist presence in American communities and politics.
As democratic socialists, we share a profound belief that a better world is possible. We are committed to working towards greater economic and social justice so that the needs of everyone can be met, as opposed to the further enrichment of a privileged few. In order to achieve a truly just and democratic society in which ordinary people assume control over their own lives, the economy and many government institutions must be radically transformed. Only by joining together in collective action are we able to bring about the progressive changes our world so desperately needs. Activists who share our commitment to the ideals of democratic socialism have a vital role to play in building these movements for change.
