The Puget Sound Socialists is the Meetup group for the Seattle branch of the International Socialist Organization. The ISO is committed to building a left alternative to a world of racism, poverty, war, and environmental destruction. A socialist society where people come before profit—built from the bottom up through the struggles of ordinary people against exploitation, oppression, and injustice—is desperately needed.

In the U.S., a tiny proportion of the population enjoys fantastic wealth, while millions of people live in desperate poverty, and many more live paycheck to paycheck. Yet we have the resources to feed, clothe and educate everyone on the planet. A world free of exploitation is not only possible but worth fighting for.

The ISO stands in the tradition of revolutionary socialists Karl Marx, V.I. Lenin and Leon Trotsky in the belief that workers themselves—the vast majority of the population—are the only force that can lead the fight to win a socialist society. Socialism can’t be brought about from above, but has to be won by workers themselves. The Democratic Party, much like the Republicans, acts in the interests of Corporate America and the privileged few at the top, and we do not support their candidates.

We see our task as building an independent socialist organization with members organizing in our workplaces, our schools, and our neighborhoods to bring socialist ideas to the struggles we are involved in today, and the vision of a socialist world in the future. The Puget Sound Socialists District is affiliated nationally with the International Socialist Organization (ISO) the largest revolutionary organization in the U.S. with branches and members in more than 65 cities across the country.
