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.
