As democratic socialists, we envision a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, radical social equality, and non-oppressive relationships.
We are the Dubuque Local of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). DSA is a national activist organization, which seeks to facilitate the transition to a truly democratic and socialist society.
We reject an economic order based solely on private profit, alienated labor, gross inequalities of wealth and power, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo. We reject discrimination based on race, ethnicity, country of origin, socio-economic class, dis/ability, age, sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation.
Our organization is not a political party. We welcome anti-capitalist Democrats, Greens, independents, etc.—anyone committed to developing a diverse and active organization that advances socialist values.
