Democratic Socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few.


Our Mission

Our mission is to do more than resist Trump. Without a grand vision for a better future, the left cannot hope to do anymore than defend a status quo that we are unsatisfied with. Yes, we must defend the most vulnerable in our society, but we must also demand a future that serves all of us, rather than the wealthy few.


Our Demands

The economy must be run democratically; none shall be poor so another can be rich

The abolition of poverty

Affordable, humane housing for all

Universal Medicare-for-all

Free education: from pre-K to trades, college and beyond

Democracy in the workplace; all workers have the right to organize

Complete reproductive freedom in all forms

An end to racial, gender and all other forms of oppression

An end to punitive justice and mass incarceration

An end to military and police aggression

Democratic control over the environment to preserve the planet


Active organizing for democracy is needed now more than ever. For this to succeed, both working and poor people—who are the majority—have to have a voice. DSA is one of those voices.
