The Democratic Socialists of America is the largest socialist organization in the United States, with over 80,000 members. We believe that working people should run both the economy and society democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few.
As a democratic, grassroots organization, DSA is continuing the political revolution for the long term. By paying dues, DSA members self-fund our own tools for liberation.
All DSA members who reside or work in the greater metropolitan Atlanta area are members of the Atlanta DSA. No one is denied membership for lack of funds.
Join A New Member Intro Session
We regularly host New Member Intro Sessions. These group info/Q&A sessions are the best way to get involved in Atlanta DSA!

Forward us your dues receipt
After you join, you should receive a “Welcome to DSA” email or dues receipt from the DSA National Office after signing up. To get onboarded to the chapter sooner rather than later, forward your dues receipt to membership(at)atldsa.org! When we get a dues receipt, we will invite you to our Slack workspace, and you will also be able to use your Slack login information to access our Membership Portal.
Join your local DSA Branch
We have neighborhood groups called “Branches” around the metro Atlanta area. Branches have weekly calls and organize around local issues in their immediate area by fighting against bad landlords, organizing reading groups, mobilizing to protests and events together. If you live near a Branch, a great way to get involved is to email them to join their next weekly meeting! Find your Branch!
