Event Information

Trans rights and abortion access are the front lines of the fight against the far right and for working class liberation.

Control of our own bodies is a fundamental human right — which is why this year, Trans Rights and Bodily Autonomy are joining Labor and Climate work as national priorities for the Democratic Socialists of America.

On February 3rd, DSA is launching our national Trans Rights and Bodily Autonomy Campaign Commission with a mass virtual call. We’re honored to welcome trans journalist Erin Reed — the leading voice on trans rights news in America via her newsletter Erin in the Morning, where she routinely breaks stories cited by the New York Times, Washington Post, and other major news outlets. We invite all DSA chapters to join this call and plan together how we can defend and advance trans rights and abortion access by getting active in our communities, unions, and schools across the country.

Once launched, this commission will act as an organizing and resource hub for our over 150 chapters in 48 states. It will struggle on different fronts including for legislative reform, defense of queer community spaces, protection of queer people in the workplace, distribution of trans and abortion resources, and a national Day of Action on March 31, Trans Day of Visibility.

Socialists believe an injury to one is an injury to all — which means we're all in this fight together. If you're trans, we want you to know that you are loved. You are worth defending.

With nearly 100,000 members, 150+ chapters, and over 200 elected officials spanning every level of government, DSA is ready to fight for you. If you haven't joined us yet, you can find your nearest chapter, and can become a member at
