Berkshires Democratic Socialists of America

Who are we?

Welcome to the Berkshires chapter of the Democratic Socialists of  America!

The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States. We believe that working people should run both the economy and society democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few. Berkshires DSA members use a variety of tactics, from legislative to direct action, to fight for reforms that empower working people.

WHAT DO WE WANT?

At the root of our socialism is a profound commitment to democracy, as means and end.
As we are unlikely to see an immediate end to capitalism tomorrow, DSA fights for reforms today that will weaken the power of corporations and increase the power of working people. For example, we support reforms that:

  • decrease the influence of money in politics
  • empower ordinary people in workplaces and the economy
  • restructure gender and cultural relationships to be more equitable.
