Charlotte DSA is the regional chapter for members of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) in the Charlotte Metro Area.
The largest socialist organization in the United States, DSA is an activist organization, not a political party. Through the work of our members in local chapters and on a national level, DSA is at the center of the struggle for progress, justice, & democracy. We fight for an economy based on social needs & democratic values, not unchecked greed & unaccountable power; against oppression based on class, race, gender, sexuality, nationality, & other forms of injustice; for a clean environment & a livable world; against militarism at home and abroad. We pursue meaningful advances on all of these issues while building a long-term movement for social and economic change.
DSA is the major organization on the American left with an all-embracing moral vision, systematic social analysis, and political praxis rooted in the quest for radical democracy, social freedom, and individual liberties.

DSA carries on a fine old American tradition— the tradition carried on by Eugene Debs, Mother Jones, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and thousands more. I am proud to be a member.
