Join Us

We stand at the beginning of a new political era. But the progressive movement faces a crisis of leadership. The Right uses red-baiting against even the most modest of reforms which might control corporate power. Many progressives fear identification with the “s” word and thus run towards the center, inherently unable to name the root cause of our economic inequality as the capitalist system. In this ideological vacuum the entire political debate shifts to the right.

The Left must create a new vision and a new mission rooted in a new sense of purpose. Democratic socialists have an historic opportunity and responsibility to play a central role in the founding of the next Left, and DSA is prepared to meet this challenge.

We invite you to join us in this effort! All members of DSA receive a subscription to our quarterly magazine, Democratic Left and automatic access to DSA's (Virtual) Little Red Schoolhouse, our activist webinar training series.

Upcoming Events

Abortion Access Bowl-A-Thon

April 30, 2014 · 13 rsvps
in your local community

DSA's Socialist Feminism Commission is organizing our participation in the National Network of Abortion Funds Bowl-A-Thon fundraisers throughout the month of April. These bowl-a-thons raise money for poor women to access safe abortions.

DSA and YDS chapters are organizing 6-8 person teams, or you can organize your own, or you can join a team in your community as a "free agent" bowler.

Teams pick puntastic names (Bowlsheviks, Red Strikers, Roll v Wade, etc.), set a group fundraising goal and fundraising pages through the national Network, and start spreading the word.

Socialist feminists know that women deserve free abortion on demand, a full range of culturally appropriate reproductive health care and family services and an economic system allowing for full employment and compensation for caregiving of the elderly and young. "Reproductive justice" is a concept that moves beyond the notions of "choice" and "rights." It links the calls for reproductive choice (a woman's right to control her own body) to the broader issues of economic justice and human rights (creating conditions that enable people to have children, not only to not have them). Access to abortion is one small, but critical, part of reproductive justice. 

RSVP and the Socialst Feminist Commission will be in touch with details about how to register or join a DSA or YDS team.

NOTE: April 30th is not the event date - bowl-a-thons happen on different dates in different communities, and we will put you in touch with your local event once you RSVP.
