About

Rochester Area Democratic Socialists is the local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America.

The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. DSA’s members are building progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly democratic socialist presence in American communities and politics. 

Rochester Area Democratic Socialists 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.
