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

Thanks to our canvassing efforts for Medicare for All nationally and paid sick leave here in Austin proved the deciding factor in the City Council vote. Thanks to our work, all workers in Austin now have paid sick leave! Join us to help accomplish our next goal for a better world!
