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.
Convention 2020 is coming up and you can be apart of it!
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.

The next general body meeting will be 6:45PM-8:30PM at the Parish Hall of the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection on Tuesday, September 17, 2019. See our calendar for more events!
Bigger Than Bernie: A Book Talk with Meagan Day & Micah Uetricht
July 15, 2020 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
You must RSVP here for the Zoom link! https://actionnetwork.org/events/bigger-than-bernie-book-talk-with-meagan-day-and-micah-uetricht
Meagan Day and Micah Uetricht's book, Bigger than Bernie, is a plan for winning socialism regardless of who's in the White House. The book is a great introduction to:
- the past few years of DSA wins and the coalitions behind them
- class struggle candidates and a "dirty break" from the Democratic Party
- the rank-and-file labor strategy and activism
We'll discuss more recent DSA and labor organizing campaigns, protests, and police unions - and take questions from y'all.
Here are some podcast interviews they did recently:
