Veterans Working Group

The DSA Veterans’ Working Group seeks to provide a conduit for veterans to connect with their communities and with each other to fight for our shared goals: racial, economic, social, environmental, gender, religious and disability rights justice. Our mission continues as organizers and comrades helping to enact democratic socialism.

Veterans have seen the inner workings of the beast that is our capitalist, war driven society, creating profit for the 1% at the expense of the many - who are often from working class backgrounds themselves, seeking opportunities to improve their status through military service. On a more positive note, veterans also understand the value of working as a group towards a common goal or mission.

Our projects will include:

  • recruiting from within the veteran population
  • facilitating the membership of driven and motivated veterans who will support DSA’s mission
  • giving alternative narratives to the military experience which may help people consider socialism superior to capitalism
  • advocating for veterans’ issues in solidarity with our partner socialist organizations
