Communication is a key function in Richmond DSA - and we do everything from logo, poster and online graphic design to printing materials and articles of clothing that proudly declare our commitment to socialism.
The Electoral Committee builds connections with elected and other public officials, conducts advocacy on behalf of the Local, and pursues research on public elections, candidates, and public policy and legislation.
The Richmond People's Survey is a base-building project in collaboration with the Organization for a Free Society. People's Survey canvassers go door-to-door and wherever else Richmonders congregate and ask what community needs they think have gone unmet.
Richmond DSA participates in the national DSA campaign for health care provided by a single social insurance, free at the point of service, covering every person in the United States, for all medically necessary procedures and medications.
The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) rejects an economic order based solely on private profit, alienated labor, gross inequalities of wealth and power, discrimination based on race and sex, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo.
DSA envisions a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, gender and racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships.
Our conception of socialism is a profoundly democratic one. It is rooted in the belief that human beings should be free to develop to their fullest potential, that public policies should be determined not by wealth but by popular participation, and that individual liberties should be carefully safeguarded.
