What we're about

Welcome to the online home of the Metro DC (DC/MD/Northern VA) Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)!

The DSA is the largest and fastest growing socialist organization in the United States. We believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. DSA's members are building movements for social and economic justice while fighting for change in our communities and workplaces.

Stay connected by following us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MetroDCDSA/) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/mdc_dsa).

Medicare 4 All Working Group Biweekly Meeting | #M4A

Link visible for attendees

Democratic Socialists are fighting to make single-payer Medicare for All healthcare a reality.

Help us fight to replace our fractured and broken health system with a unified Medicare for All system.

In order to get our politicians to buck their billionaire donors and side with the majority, we have to threaten them with a mass political movement. But the movement we need cannot be built overnight.

That’s why we need each and every person to get involved. Winning Medicare for All will mean establishing a piece of real democratic socialism and building a broader working-class movement to take on the elite and the billionaire class.


This event is open to both DSA Members and supporters.

Migrant Justice Workgroup Open Meeting

Needs a location

This is the first open meeting of the Metro DC DSA Migrant Justice Workgroup in months. If you have any interest in this work, you're encouraged to join to listen, learn, and contribute.

Our work group has undertaken a number of campaigns in recent years. Currently we're organizing to get ICE out of Arlington---as part of that, we need people to attend a July 16th Arlington County Board Meeting and hold signs. We are also aiding migrants that are being bused to the DMV by heartless right-wing governors in Arizona and Texas. We primarily do our organizing in coalition with La Colectiva, SURJ and other groups.
