Democratic Socialists of America Triples Membership Since Trump

Membership in the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) has tripled since Donald Trump’s election in November to over 19,000 paying members, a report from the Los Angeles Times reveals.

The group, founded in 1982, is now the largest socialist organization in the United States and recently published a “Resistance Rising” strategy to combat the Trump administration.

“On November 8, voters in the United States narrowly elected an openly racist, misogynist and nativist candidate for president,” the organization’s website reads. “We must understand ‘Trumpism’ as a cross-class white nativist alliance; the median family income of the 62 percent of white voters who supported Trump was higher than that of Hillary Clinton voters and wealthier than Bernie Sanders’ primary base.”

Recently, the group organized protests outside Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s election party, calling on the new mayor to fight Donald Trump’s deportation plans. DSA also organized a march supporting the International Women’s Day strike.
