Becoming a Member
The Democratic Socialists of America is funded by our membership—not corporations or wealthy donors. This ensures that DSA members are in full control of the organization. By paying dues, DSA members self-fund our own tools of liberation. As a dues-paying member, you have the right to vote in your local chapter meetings.
Annual and Monthly Dues
You can choose to pay dues annually or monthly. All annual dues are retained by the national organization. Monthly dues are split between the national organization and local chapters, so we encourage you to select that option if possible. Sign up here. If the standard dues amount would be a financial burden for you, you may fill in any amount you wish or email to request an exemption. Be sure to also join our local mailing list.
Work with Us Locally
Ready to organize in Portland? Come to the next general meeting or another event to meet your new comrades in person. Outside of meetings, our day-to-day communications are conducted in the chapter’s Slack workspace and on Google Drive. After signing up on the national website, forward the confirmation email (from Maria Svart) to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you invites to both platforms. You can also donate to support the activities of the Portland chapter. Log in here to update your profile for recurring donations.
