Welcome to ROC DSA!

We are activists committed to democracy as not simply one of our political values but our means of restructuring society. Our vision is of a society in which we, the people, have a real voice in the choices and relationships that affect the entirety of our lives.

We call this vision democratic socialism — a vision of a more free, democratic, and humane society. We advocate political democracy alongside social ownership of the means of production, with an emphasis on democratic management of enterprises within a socialist economic system.

Democratic Socialists of America is the largest socialist organization in the United States. We are not a political party. Rather, we organize working people to recognize and exercise the power we have.

The owning class have the wealth, but they need our labor and our acquiescence. That gives us power–if we recognize it and take it.

We know a better world is possible. Join us in our struggle to build it.

ROC DSA is the local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America.

ROC DSA seeks to advance this mission locally. Founded in 2016, we’re a multi-issue social justice organization with an explicit critique of capitalism. We also work in coalition with other local progressive groups, mobilizing for and amplifying their efforts.
