Who we are & what we do

Democratic Socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few. We are a political and activist organization, not a party; through campus and community-based chapters DSA members use a variety of tactics, from legislative to direct action, to fight for reforms that empower working people.

    Canvassing for Single-Payer Healthcare

    When: Sunday, March 26, 2017 at 01:00 PM
    Where: Broadway Coffee in Sacramento, CA

    Health care is a basic human need. An effective health care system that spends wisely and covers everyone is critical for public health, safety and economic security. A single-payer health care system covers everyone. It has succeeded in countries throughout the developed world.  Single payer essentially pools all health care dollars, negotiates prices and pays all bills. Health Care for All - California is working to achieve universal health care through a publicly financed single-payer system. The single-payer movement - often called the civil rights movement of our generation - needs you now. Please join us to make this a reality!
