Who We Are
The Lancaster County DSA is a local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America. We have a vision of a society with democracy at its core, giving equal power to every person whether it be at work or in how public policies get created. We firmly believe that capitalism as an economic system is failing us, resulting in massive inequality and causing major rifts within our communities. If we can describe our vision in one word that word would be “Solidarity.” Solidarity with every person no matter their race, beliefs, economic status, gender or orientation. Since solidarity is our defining word, we also care about our environment, rejecting the idea that corporate giants can continue down a path that is harming our planet with high emissions, disregard for fragile ecosystems around the world, and even disregard for the health and well being of people everywhere.
