Austin Democratic Socialists of America

Who We Are

Democratic Socialists of America is the largest socialist organization in the United States and we are in the midst of explosive growth nationally and locally. We are not a political party; we are an activist organization. Our vision is of a democratically run economy and society that gives power to the people rather than the privileged elites. Learn more about us.

Join Today

Simply put, we fight for a better world. Join us in our mission to build a democratically run economy and society that serves the needs of all.

Health Justice

In Feburary, Austin DSA’s city-wide canvassing for Paid Sick Days and Medicare for All proved to be a deciding factor in City Council’s vote to establish an ordinance that guarantees every worker in the city earned sick time.

The fight is far from over. Not only must we protect Paid Sick Days from the reactionary Texas Legislature, we must also continue the fight for universal Medicare for All. Learn more here (also available in Spanish).


Austin DSA endorses Prop A, a $250 million affordable housing bond on the ballot this November. Want to help us build homes for people, not for profit? Learn how at the Housing Committee page.
