We are the Nassau County chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, the largest socialist organization in the United States.
Nassau County DSA originally formed in September 2017 and began meeting monthly. 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 guaranteed housing. We have mounted pressure campaigns on our representatives, engaged in political education initiatives, protested, and engaged in electoral work. In addition to state and federal fights for public representatives and broader campaigns.
The campaigns we're currently working on include:
