Who We Are:

The River Valley DSA is a chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, the largest socialist organization in the United States. We are an incorporated, 501(c)(4) organization that is dedicated to fighting oppression and oppressive structures in all forms, while establishing an openly socialist presence in our communities and in national and local politics across the country. The DSA is not a political party, but we are political activists and organizers.

Our fundamental commitment is to democracy, not only as a political principle, but as a means of restructuring society for the better. The struggles against racism, homophobia, income inequality, white supremacy, patriarchy, and other oppressions, in our view, are urgent and interlinked. Our members are building progressive movements for positive social change across the country and here in the Valley. We are fighting for a world in which all people have a real voice in their workplace and community, and a society in which everyone is free to live in peace, dignity, and health.

Such a radical vision does not happen overnight. It requires a sustained, multi-faceted, collective effort. DSA chapters and members are pushing for progressive changes today, while planting the seeds of the more just, free and fair society that we aspire to live in tomorrow. Help us fight for a better future for all people: join DSA today.
