All dues-paying members in good standing of the Democratic Socialists of America national organization who live within the Greater Capital District (including all of Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Fulton, Montgomery, Saratoga, Warren, Washington, Greene, and Columbia Counties) are considered to be full members of the Capital District chapter.
If you’d like to become a member, please join through the national DSA membership page. You can become by paying the minimum annual dues or by becoming a monthly sustainer – as a chapter, we receive 20% of our members’ dues to national which supports our organizing work so we encourage you become a monthly sustainer. Once you sign up as a member, you will receive a confirmation email from the national organization. Then, please forward that to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. After that, we’ll provide the next steps to officially become a member of the Capital District DSA!
You can also give small dollar, monthly donations directly to the chapter on top of joining the DSA. We’re a thrifty chapter but more financial resources will go a long way towards bottomlining our work across the Capital District.
If you’d like to become a DSA member but cannot afford any of the membership options, please contact us at email@example.com to discuss what we can do for you.
If you’re not ready to join but would like to learn more about us and what we do, check out our Facebook and Twitter pages, or come get to know us at one of our general meetings or other public events!
