Austin Democratic Socialists of America
Democratic Socialists of America
Austin Chapter

Welcome to Austin DSA. Join us in our mission to build a democratically run economy and society that serves the needs of all.

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.

The actions of the Trump administration give new urgency to the DSA’s mission. We stand in solidarity with people of color, immigrants, Muslims, Jews, women, LGBTQ people and all those targeted by Trump and the GOP.

Join us in the fight for a better world.

Get Involved

Our general meetings are every third Thursday 7-8:30pm at Scholz Garten. All are welcome! Meetings are open to the public, and you can bring your kids.

Ready to help make a difference?

Come see us at our general meetings every third Thursday at Scholz Garten 7-8:30pm or check out our issue-driven committees to find out how you can promote democratic socialism in your community.
