Our Initiatives and Projects

Brake Lights Clinic

The Best Police Interaction Is No Interaction

Getting pulled over for having a brake light out can mean at least a burdensome fine, at worst police violence. Our brake light clinics remove the reason for the police stop by checking and repairing bulbs for our neighbors, for free!

About Richmond DSA

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.
