Countdown to Convention 2023

There are only a few months left until comrades from all over the country will come together in Chicago for our 2023 National Convention. From August 4-6, we’ll debate, discuss, and vote on consequential political decisions for our organization.

As a member who joined in 2016, this will be my fourth and our biggest convention yet. If you’re undecided as to whether or not to run for delegate in your chapter, I encourage you to go for it! It’s empowering to take part in the decision-making that orients DSA. Meeting comrades in person, after months of virtual collaboration, is incredibly fortifying. We’ll have time to learn from each other and debrief about past and ongoing campaigns and organizing efforts.

We’ll hear both from speakers fighting for socialism around the globe and those strengthening our movement for socialism here at home. Most importantly, you’ll leave with a sense of our national power and the work we have to do going forward. The size of the crises we aim to fight against demands a mass organization.

Together we have all built DSA into one of the largest socialist organizations in decades, an organization that’s independent, democratic, member-driven, and member-funded. The organization we love requires our time, care, and energy to keep alive the vision we fight for. We look forward to seeing many of you in Chicago this August!

Convention Dates: Early bird registration opens May 13 / Delegate elections continue through June 6
