Is DSA or DSA-LA affiliated with the Democratic Party?

No! We are an independent grassroots political activist organization, only accountable to our members – specifically, we're a 501c(4). Our chapters and members are free to work within the Democratic Party, but many choose to work outside of it. In the electoral sphere, our chapters and members frequently endorse candidates running within the Democratic Party, but DSA prioritizes political engagement that extends beyond electoral politics.
