The Grand Rapids DSA is a local chapter of the Democratic socialists of America. We organize in Kent, Ottawa, Allegan, Barry, Ionia, and Newaygo counties of Michigan. Grand Rapids Democratic Socialists fight for socialism over barbarism. We are organizing the working class to fight the establishment.
All are welcome to attend our general meetings or any other events hosted by Grand Rapids DSA. However, you do have to become a dues-paying member in order to vote on chapter business and hold a leadership position. We do not take money from huge corporate sponsors and rely on funding from our members. Furthermore, members will receive a cool DSA organizer card in the mail.
You can sign up on the national Democratic Socialists of America website.
The Grande Rapids Democratic Socialists of America has a regular chapter meeting on the first Saturday of each month. The meeting is held at the Eastown Community Association. It is located near Wealthy and Ethel Street. In addition to our regular chapter meeting, we also have four working groups. You can read more about them on the working group page.
