Labor Working Group
Labor solidarity is at the core of democratic socialist politics. Without a strong and organized working class movement, we can’t hope to build the power necessary to challenge capitalism. To that end, the Labor Working Group works to identify ways DSA can support our comrades involved in local labor struggles, to talk with DSA members in unions about what it means to be a democratic socialist in the labor movement, and to work with new DSA members to help form unions in their workplaces.
