What Is Democratic Socialism?
Democratic socialists advocate for a radical restructuring of our economic and political systems to value people over profits. Rather than our current economy, which is controlled by the wealthy few for their own benefit, we envision an economy that is democratically controlled by all Americans. By working toward progressive change that empowers workers, people of color, women, the LGBTQ community and other marginalized Americans, we believe that we can create a free, democratic, humane society.
Check out our Committees and Campaigns to see what we’re working on. If you’re interested in learning more about our national structure and the broader democratic socialist movement in the United States, please visit the national DSA website, dsausa.org.
If you’re looking for ways to get involved in progressive politics, we welcome you! We’re looking for people to join our working groups to advance our fight for social, economic and racial justice both nationally and locally in Washington, DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia.
