What really scares the pro-plutocrats on both sides of the political aisle about...Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders and other democratic socialists is that they have... an actual vision — the simple idea that it’s up to government to intervene and equalize the playing field between the capital that owns the politicians, the system and the rewards, and the general public toiling to provide those rewards Krystal Ball

Democratic Socialists of America is a multi-tendency socialist and labor-oriented nonprofit organization of democratic socialist, social democratic and labor-oriented members who instead of running candidates in elections, work for reforms to weaken the power of corporations and strengthen the power of working people.

  • In the long run democratic socialists want to end capitalism... by pursuing a reform agenda today in an effort to revive a politics focused on class hierarchy and inequality... The eventual goal is to transform the world to promote everyone’s needs rather than to produce massive profits for a small handful of citizens.
  • When democratic socialists choose reforms to rally behind, we favor battles with the potential to transform ordinary people’s lives for the better and teach millions of people the value of uniting to fight the capitalist Goliaths currently in charge of our society.
