Ecosocialist Committee

DSA protests National Grid’s rate hikes proposed during COVID-19, 10/23/2021

Our Mission

This committee is formed out of the reality of a planetary ecological crisis – and a conviction that the only solution to this crisis is to abolish capitalism and replace it with socialism, oriented toward human and ecological needs. Our mission is to fight for this future and ensure that the transition to socialism within the country and our local community is based on sound ecological principles, preserving the viability of nature and human environments for future generations and other forms of life. We recognize the particular burdens that  the multiracial working class – especially Indigenous communities defending their traditional territories – face under the capitalist ecocide and stand in solidarity with them.

Our Campaigns

Our principal campaigns currently include:

  • Working for socially responsible renewable energy for all New Yorkers through statewide publicly-owned utilities
  • Advancing environmental justice organizing through the fight against lead poisoning in Syracuse.
  • Educating, organizing, and mobilizing for national-level actions on climate change and the Green New Deal.
