Sign up to support Metro D.C. DSA's electoral efforts in the coming year and help us build power for working class communities in Montgomery County and D.C.!
This year, we're incredibly excited that our chapter voted overwhelmingly to support electoral organizing as a priority and endorsed several candidates as well as a ballot initiative.
Each of these campaigns is facing strong opposition from corporations, lobbying groups, and moneyed interests. But with your help, we know that socialist candidates and initiatives with an organized, people-powered movement behind them can win. Our chapter members have knocked on more than 115,000 doors and made more than 61,000 phone calls to voters since 2017. We’ve successfully helped elect candidates as part of progressive and labor coalitions in Virginia, Maryland, and D.C. Our endorsed candidates have gone on to fight for legislation to expand public housing, increase taxes on the rich, cap insulin prices, repeal anti-union “right to work” laws, create social wealth funds, ban revolving-door lobbying, close corporate tax loopholes, create a universal basic income, expose confidential police records, end for-profit migrant detention across the state, and more.
Our *highest* priority—and where DSA historically has had the strongest impact—is contacting voters through canvassing. This is because in-person conversations with voters are proven to be one of the most important and effective tools to reach and persuade voters and ensure that they turn out on Election Day. However, there are several ways for everyone to contribute, including but not limited to phone banking, research, communications, and administrative support. Let us know what you're interested in below!
Finally, you do not have to be a member of DSA to join our canvasses and other activities. We are open to anyone interested in volunteering and would love to have you!
