About Us

DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS OF AMERICA SEEKS TO BUILD A MILWAUKEE WHERE ALL PEOPLE CAN LIVE A FULL AND DIGNIFIED LIFE.

The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is poised to be a significant mass organization in the resurgence of a popular socialist movement in the United States. A century ago, Milwaukee was at the forefront of just such a movement. Today, DSA is committed to a politics that will radically transform Milwaukee, shifting power in this city from capital to the people. We challenge the systemic oppression of capitalism and racism that has made Milwaukee the most segregated city in America. We struggle against persistent sexism, heteropatriarchy, and xenophobia which undermine the dignity of all people, and demand radical alternatives for a Milwaukee that places the demands of people above the whims of capital.

We are a small but growing chapter of DSA. Our organization reflects DSA values of solidarity and democratic processes that aim to unite the Left, transcending capitalist structures that keep Milwaukee divided. Within the organization, we confront capitalist-imposed social isolation by building solidarity and comradeship through social gatherings as well as political action. We also aim to be a partner to all Left organizations in Milwaukee, defining our power in service to others. We aspire to build strength with other organizations through solidarity, offering an alternative to capitalism for everyone.
