Join Us

Democratic socialists have an historic opportunity and responsibility to play a central role in continuing the political revolution for the long term. As a democratic, grassroots organization, DSA is prepared to meet this challenge. We invite you to join us today!

DSA is funded by our membership — not corporate foundations or private companies. This ensures that DSA members are in full democratic and political control of our organization. By paying dues, DSA members self-fund our own tools for liberation. No one is turned away for lack of funds.

All members of DSA receive a subscription to our quarterly magazine, Democratic Left and automatic access to DSA's activist webinar training series. DSA's privacy policy is available here. For a PDF form to mail in with a check, click here.

When you join below, be sure to put in an email address you use regularly. You will get a welcome email right away with downloadable member resources.

Join DSA member and labor historian Susan Hirsch in discussing Union Maids (1976).

The filmmakers were members of the New American Movement (a precursor of DSA), and the late Vicki Starr (aka Stella Nowicki) was a longtime member of Chicago DSA and the Chicago Women's Liberation Union.
