The NYC-DSA Chapter is an entirely member-funded organization, and have relied on contributions from members like you to support all of our work and campaigns. Thus far, we have raised money through fundraising events, but as our Chapter grows, and our members engage in ever larger and more ambitious campaigns, we can no longer sustain ourselves on events alone.
Recognizing the needs of our chapter, delegates to our most recent annual convention voted overwhelmingly to initiate a monthly “dues” program. Our expenses include our local organizer, recurring maintenance costs like our website and Zoom, as well as yearly events such as our Citywide convention, and specific items to help carry out our political work. For example, this year we have spent money on:
Literature and materials for priority campaigns
Zoom meeting and webinar accounts
Rapid Response text banking to turn out for actions
Please note, NYC-DSA Chapter Dues are entirely separate from National Dues, and does not confer national membership. If you are interested in becoming a member of DSA, please join here. Monthly Chapter Dues are entirely voluntary, and we appreciate any amount that you can commit. Becoming a local dues-paying member of the Democratic Socialists of America is the first step in building the collective power we need to challenge the ruling class
