Recruitment Flyer: Cornel West


DSA is the major organization on the American left with an all-embracing moral vision, systematic social analysis, and political praxis rooted in the quest for radical democracy, social freedom, and individual liberties.

—Cornel West

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is an activist organization, not a political party. From fighting for single-payer healthcare or to restore our economy, from combating wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the domestic war on the poor, to proposing democratic alternatives to the power of the big banks and transnational corporations, DSA is central to the struggle to advance a progressive America. This struggle is carried on not only by prominent leaders but more importantly, through the work of DSA activists in communities and on campuses.

America's Right wing built powerful movements around big ideas and fundamental values. Their leadership is motivated and organized ideologically. We progressives need to proclaim our big ideas and our fundamentally democratic values. Democratic Socialists believe "we the people" should control not just the government but the powerful economic institutions that so deeply affect our lives.

So, take the next step. Stand up with us for your socialist values. Join with us in affirming a progressive future for America. DSA works on immediate issues, like peace, jobs and health care as we build a long-term movement for social and economic change. To join DSA is to help build coalitions across single-issue movements and educate the public about the threat posed to democracy by unbridled corporate capitalist power.

The growth of corporate power and neoliberal global capitalism threaten the possibility of democracy both at home and abroad. We are part of an international movement fostering solidarity across borders. But as residents of the most powerful capitalist nation, we recognize that our greatest act of international solidarity is to build a vibrant and diverse Left in the United States. We invite you to join us in an effort worthy of a lifetime of commitment.
