Nassau County Democratic Socialists of America
We are the Nassau County chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, the largest socialist organization in the United States.
The Nassau County Organizing Committee formed in September 2017 and began meeting monthly. The Nassau County chapter of DSA officially adopted the bylaws at our July 2018 meeting.
We organize for democracy in our workplaces and our communities with activism and education. We believe that working people should run both the economy and society democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few. We are a political and activist organization, not a party, with the goal of empowering all working-class and oppressed people.
We fight for broad systemic reforms such universal single payer healthcare, a Green New Deal, free public education, expansion of workplace democracy and for housing to be a human right. Historically we have mounted pressure campaigns on our representatives, engaged in political education initiatives, protested, and engaged in electoral work. However, in addition to long distance fights for broad reforms, we are currently working on meeting the needs of our communities right now via our mutual aid program.
