DSA is funded by our membership — not corporate foundations or private companies. This ensures that DSA members are in full democratic and political control of our organization. By paying dues, DSA members self-fund our own tools for liberation.

If you can afford to pay dues, you can become a member online:

Step 1: Sign up for national membership.
Step 2: Forward your email confirmation to to get involved right away while you wait for a response from national.

No one is turned away for lack of funds. To sign up and request that your dues are waived, follow these steps:

Step 1: Email with your full name and mailing address if you have one. If you don’t have a mailing address just let them know.
Step 2: Forward the email you sent in step 1 to to get involved right away while you wait for a response from national.

Check out our chapter handbook

The DSA SF Chapter handbook is meant to answer the questions we hear frequently from new members. How do I get started? How do I vote? Where can I find out what the chapter is doing?

Organizing During COVID-19

San Francisco DSA has written and endorsed a platform for addressing the pandemic of COVID-19. If you want to get involved, sign up for one of our active projects. We also recommend you become a member as well so that you have access to all of the chapter infrastructure for communicating remotely (Slack, Zoom, etc).

Join a DSA SF committee or working group

Please let us know what you are interested in working on. We’ll reach out to let you know how to get involved and sign you up for our general email list if you aren’t already on it. We will never share your information with anyone outside of the Democratic Socialists of America.
