Who we are & what we do
The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States. We believe that the economy should be run democratically, by working people, to meet human needs—not to make profits for a few. We are an activist organization, not a political party. We oppose all forms of oppression, including those based on race, immigration status, ethnicity, religion, ability, gender, and sexuality.
Here in Detroit—and in chapters around the country—DSA members are building movements for social change and establishing a democratic socialist presence in American communities and politics. Today, there are five DSA members in Congress, including our very own Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). More are on their way.
General meetings take place on the first Saturday of the month in downtown Detroit.
