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

Needs a location

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.

Not a Member? Please consider becoming a Member. Fees are on a sliding scale according to what you feel you can afford: http://dsausa.org/join?source=Metro%20DC
