Building democratic socialism in Central New York!

Syracuse DSA is an autonomous and democratically organized branch of the Democratic Socialists of America operating in Syracuse, NY and the Central New York region. Members of Syracuse DSA are active in the broader advocacy community organizing to build a better world for the working class. Our chapter is currently working on several projects, including:

We are a political and activist organization, not a party—through campus and community-based chapters, DSA members use a variety of tactics, from legislative to direct action, to fight for reforms that empower working people.

Interested in joining us? Our members organize and uplift democratic socialist causes throughout the Syracuse, NY and Central New York area. Fill out our New Member Interest form and one of our organizers will contact you!
