March on Mississippi

Join Sen. Bernie Sanders and Democratic Socialists of America at the March on Mississippi to support Nissan workers and the right of workers to form a union on Sat. March 4th.

We're bringing our folks from DSA groups across the South together for weekend of marching, training, and connecting on March 4th & 5th in Jackson, MS and Canton, MS. Join fellow DSA members and our National Organizer to build your skills and support workers. We’ll attend the "March on Mississippi" with Bernie Sanders, Rev. William Barber and other movement leaders and then come together for a DSA organizing training the following day.

The workers at the Nissan Canton plant have been fighting for workers' and civil rights for over a decade, but the company has been extremely hostile to their efforts. A win for these workers would be a gamechanger for labor in Mississippi, the South, the US, and internationally--and our support of the workers' "March on Mississippi" could be decisive! Let's organize the South!

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is not a political party, we are a multi-issue democratic socialist organization working to build a movement for economic and political democracy, social justice, equality and freedom. We share a broad democratic socialist vision and welcome different points of view on issues like electoral politics. We welcome democratic socialists who work in the Democratic Party, Green Party or any other party who share that vision. Many of our members are also members of other socialist groups and parties.. all are welcome to join us to build a larger movement!
