LGBT Pride Month





Memphis DSA Presents a public screening of the fantastic movie PRIDE!

PRIDE is inspired by an extraordinary true story. It's the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers' families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all..

Celebrate LGBT Pride with Memphis DSA!

Tuesday June 13th (6:30 –8:00 PM)

Fight for $15 March on Memphis (April 4)



Memphis: It’s time to fight.

We are still fighting for The Dream.
This year marks 49 years since Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination, but white supremacy and corporate greed continue to work together against families forced to struggle to make ends meet.
On April 4, thousands of activists with the Fight for $15 and the Movement for Black Lives will take to the streets in two-dozen cities across the country to continue the fight for racial and economic justice. 
RSVP to join us in Memphis on April 4. 
What: Fight for $15 National Protest
Where: Memphis City Hall, 125 N. Main St, Memphis, TN
When: April 4, 2017 at 5 pm CT

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!


DSA "Organize the South!" Weekend
Saturday, March 4th
Sunday, March 5th
