Welcome!

The Capital District Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America seeks to facilitate the transition to a truly democratic and socialist society, one in which the means/resources of production are democratically and socially controlled.  Capital District DSA organizes across New York’s greater Capital District, with active branches in Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Saratoga, Warren and Washington Counties.

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.
