We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.

The idea among mostly white affluent Americans that their ancestors came "legally" is a bourgeois fantasy. Everyone who immigrated to America broke laws, here or in their land of origin, intended to deny their humanity. Only time and geography separates you from the caravan. -NYCDSA

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not ready to back Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. She says she wants to see more options and a leadership that backs Medicare for All, free college, and a living wage.

While the right seeks to stack the court, they’re also pushing for:

It's straight-up war against immigrants, poor people, and disabled folks. Fight back!

"The median Amazon employee makes $13.67 an hour. Many of those employees rely on food stamps, Medicaid and public housing to survive. You know who pays for that? You do. You know what Jeff Bezos makes every hour? $10,833,33 It's time for Amazon to get off corporate welfare."

How do we fight gentrification in North Brooklyn?

Let's count the ways:
1⃣ We end vacancy decontrol
2⃣ We expand rent stabilization to cover every New York City apartment
3⃣ We strengthen our rent laws so that we have a foundation that protects communities at risk

Did you know? DSA endorsed full BDS and declared itself in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle against apartheid, colonialism, and occupation.

🗣70.1% OF AMERICANS SUPPORT MEDICARE FOR ALL

❗️Democrats: 84.5%

❗️Republicans: 51.9%

Our Socialist Feminist Committee is outside TWO fake clinics today to call them out as anti-choice, and provide people with resources to real reproductive healthcare facilities.

People deserve the facts — and the healthcare they need, when they need it.

DSA has endorsed the National Prison Strike, which begins today. We stand in solidarity with incarcerated people across the nation are striking for basic human rights and an end to prison slavery.

We demand a healthcare system that centers our human welfare, not the profit motive. The fiscal cost of healthcare will always be outweighed by the compounding moral debt we accrue, here in a nation with the highest infant and maternal mortality rates amongst wealthy nations.

The proposition is that healthcare is ours by right: no child should have to suffer because their parents have a tight-fisted employer, no one should be driven to bankruptcy by medical bills. That it would save the government trillions over a decade? An afterthought.

The truth about Medicare for All won't be found in the disingenuous reports of a bought and paid for right-wing think tank. It’s found with our families and friends, who can’t afford rising premiums and astronomical deductibles and demand a humane, single-payer system, for all.

DSA now has 49K members. We're building the strong democratic socialist movement we need right now!
