The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. DSA's members are building progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly democratic socialist presence in American communities and politics.
At the root of their socialism is a profound commitment to democracy, as means and end. As America ise unlikely to see an immediate end to capitalism tomorrow, DSA fights for reforms today that will weaken the power of corporations and increase the power of working people. For example, DSA supports reforms that:
- ★ decrease the influence of money in politics
- ★ empower ordinary people in workplaces and the economy
- ★ restructure gender and cultural relationships to be more equitable.
DSA members are activists committed to democracy as not simply one of America's political values but the American means of restructuring society. DSA's vision is of a society in which people have a real voice in the choices and relationships that affect the entirety of their lives. The Democratic Socialists of America call this vision democratic socialism — a vision of a more free, democratic and humane society.
