Join DSA

We at Silicon Valley DSA want to liberate the United States from a political-economic system that works only for an elite few—a system we call capitalism.

We are one of the many local chapters of the Democratic Socialists of America. Connecting with your local chapter of DSA is the best way to get involved in the fight for socialism.

Connect with your local chapter!

To get more involved with our local, please sign up with us and let us know some basic information about you. As we grow, this will help us build democratic socialist power locally.

We will get you set up with email & text updates, and reach out to you individually. Please also read our Code of Conduct for participating in SV DSA spaces.

Dues are not mandatory. Request a dues waiver and please contact us if you have any issues joining.

Membership comes with a subscription of Democratic Left magazine, your official “socialist organizer” card, and access to national trainings and other resources. Dues help to pay for our national staff and programs.
