About

The River Valley DSA is a chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, the largest socialist organization in the United States.

We are a democratic, member-funded activist organization dedicated to building a society and economy that puts people’s needs before profits. As democratic socialists, we’re building working-class power to fight for the kind of Valley we’d like to see: one free of income inequality, racism, sexism, bigotry, and other types of oppression. We’re fighting for a world free of capitalism.

The RVDSA is not a political party. Rather, we are an incorporated, 501(c)(4) organization dedicated to establishing an openly socialist presence in Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin Counties of Massachusetts and beyond.

We know that radical changes to society and politics don’t happen overnight. As members of the chapter, we’re dedicated to fighting for the changes we need today while laying the groundwork for the society and economy we’d like to see tomorrow.
