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!

2016 Election: DUMP TRUMP!

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is joining with other progressive organizations to DUMP TRUMP on Nov. 2.  While DSA endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders primary campaign against Hillary Clinton it is not officially endorsing Hillary Clinton, but because of the threat of the Trump campaign and the racist, White Nationalist movement behind it,  we are urging voters to vote strategically to defeat Trump in the general election Nov. 2 and join with Sen. Bernie Sanders and other progressives to push a left-progressive agenda if Hillary Clinton becomes the next President.
