Join the Socialist Majority caucus

Socialist Majority - Final Web - White-01

1) Our urgent task is to build a socialist majority.
To build a socialist majority, we need to engage working people in effective campaigns around immediate demands. We need to organize in a way that recognizes and combats white supremacy, patriarchy, and all other systems of oppression as well as capitalism. We need to help build a powerful labor movement and work to elect democratic socialist candidates to office. We need to operate in a democratic way within our organization, while holding each other to a standard of generous and comradely behavior.

We face the ever more urgent need to build a social system where the working class democratically controls our workplaces, our communities, our schools, and our whole economic system. This need is both moral and structural; the misery and exploitation of capitalist workplaces stifles our human potential, and our planet will not sustain human civilization for another century absent radical transformation. Crucially, we see ourselves—as individuals and DSA—not apart from the working class, not at its forefront, but integrated within it.

As democratic socialists, we know that in order to move beyond individual reforms to the just transformation of our economy and society, we must build the support of a majority of the population—and an overwhelming majority of the working class, including its most oppressed groups. This means not just winning decisive electoral majorities, but importantly that a majority of the whole society must be invested in and willing to defend a new, radically democratic way of life. The explosion of interest in DSA represents one of the most exciting developments on the radical left in generations, but we are still a relatively small political organization. The steps we take now, both politically and organizationally, must be oriented towards connecting socialist politics and ideologies to the existing views and experiences of the communities where we live and work. We must join together in common struggle and build a unified movement that is stronger than the sum of its parts. Capitalists wield extraordinary power today, but they are nothing compared to the power of millions of people united in struggle for a new society.

2) Organizing working people around immediate and radical demands is our path to power.
Policies once viewed as radical, like a $15 minimum wage, have become overwhelmingly popular because millions of working people have advocated for themselves through campaigns that speak to their conditions and aspirations. Socialists should advance these issues, connect them to a long-term vision of democratic socialism, and build DSA—and a new socialist majority—in the process.

Our demand for a truly democratic society does not necessarily address what to do in the here and now. Answers to this pressing question vary. Some argue that socialists should build organizations that demand nothing less than the immediate end of capitalism and point to the limits of all possible reforms short of revolution. Others argue that socialists must throw themselves wholeheartedly into the struggle for working-class power wherever it exists, altering the relations of power, and winning immediate, concrete improvements in people’s lives.

We believe that socialists have been most successful when they engage fully with working-class struggles in the here and now to win concrete gains, build working-class consciousness and militancy, directly confront capitalist economic and political power, and shift the balance of power toward the working class.

We live in a time when positions that were once viewed as radical (a $15 minimum wage, single-payer healthcare, abolishing ICE, and a federal jobs guarantee) are becoming increasingly popular. We believe these reforms and even bolder demands are desirable in and of themselves, and that the best way to increase the power, class consciousness, and self-confidence of the working class is through waging and winning these struggles. The road to building long-term power runs through these kinds of short-term victories. As socialists, we can strengthen these movements for reform, ensure they are connected to the long-term vision of democratic socialism, and build both DSA and a new socialist majority in the process.

3) Effective, well-targeted campaigns around specific demands are at the heart of DSA’s political work.
Campaigns that win specific concessions from particular power centers, using tactics that large numbers of people can participate in, build confidence, skills, and power for the working class.

We win through campaigns—through focused attacks employing diverse tactics to win specific concessions from particular power centers. By “campaign” we do not mean narrowly an electoral campaign or even a legislative campaign. Campaigns can target a landlord, employer, corporation, industry, city agency, university administration, state legislature, or national politician, and tactics could include labor and tenant organizing, protest mobilization, electoral challenges, and direct action. We distinguish the campaign from other forms of political activity through its discipline and specificity. A campaign demands a particular concession from a relevant power center and is grounded in a realistic power analysis that offers a the path to winning. And win or lose, we hope that these campaigns will leave behind them lasting relationships and an organization that can carry our fight forward.

We distinguish our campaign strategy from the “activism treadmill” that many of us have experienced. Activists organize protests around an issue while it’s topical. Protest stands in for transformative work. Morale is lost, moving from one issue to the next with little space to reflect on whether anything was achieved.

Organizational work that does not directly confront the power structures we aim to disrupt or dismantle, such as mutual aid and political education, are worthwhile in and of themselves, and aid us in our growth, in coalition building, and in broadening our public platform. We can and should link these activities to campaigns that directly challenge and win concessions from ruling-class power.

4) DSA should embrace a democratic, bottom-up model of campaign development that connects local struggles with broader movements.
Campaigns developed and tested at the local level should inform national priorities through democratic processes.

The diversity of tactics and political perspectives in DSA is a strength to be celebrated, not a weakness to be tolerated. Developing effective campaigns requires both significant research into systems of power and practical experimentation. We believe it is impossible to succeed in winning a national, much less an international, socialist majority, without a mass national organization. Coordinated local and national work make us stronger and gives chapters at any stage of development opportunities for engagement. We also recognize that the DSA is most successful in building our movement when we embrace a bottom-up model of campaign development, in which committees and members within chapters and chapters within the national organization develop campaigns and prove their effectiveness.

One of the most exciting and radical things about DSA is that chapters are organized around the voluntary commitments of members. Furthermore, DSA is a place where new members can join and immediately have a voice in key decisions. We must fight to keep the most consequential questions of political direction, organizing priorities, and campaign strategy in the hands of our full membership, not in the hands of the most outspoken activists or elected leaders and staff. National leadership should be in constant dialogue with the broader membership to develop a shared political vision. They should support local chapters by providing resources, encouraging them to develop local campaigns, assisting them in developing strategic campaign plans, providing skill-building training, promoting their work, facilitating knowledge and resources exchange among chapters, and helping develop chapters’ grassroots, community-organizing skills.

5) Dismantling racist and oppressive institutions is central to our fight.
The working class, both in the U.S. and internationally, is multiracial. We will not be able to build a socialist majority without tackling white supremacy, imperialism, and other forms of oppression head on, in society, in our coalitions, and in DSA.

Socialist politics without a commitment to collective liberation is incomplete. The socialist movement must be at the forefront of struggles against all forms of oppression grounded in race, ability, national origin, faith, gender, sexual attraction, and other differences. Oppression on these terms is a great evil in its own right. It also represents perhaps the most daunting obstacle to the success of our movement. From before the founding of the United States to the present day, slavery, colonialism, imperialism, Jim Crow, segregation, and mass incarceration have resulted in profound and debilitating divisions in the working class: allowing the brunt of state repression to be levied against attempts by black, brown, and indigenous workers to assert their humanity, and supporting powerful ideologies of white supremacy and white nationalism. The lasting effects of these systems define our politics and economy today. Confronting these effects, and integrating this understanding into all of our organizing, is essential to building a united socialist majority and a society in which oppression can be ended.

Socialists can contribute a structural analysis to anti-racism and anti-oppression organizing. We know that systems of oppression are enforced and policed daily through the powerful institutions that shape our lives—schools, housing, police, the judiciary, our workplaces, the media, and an economy reliant on exploitation and extraction in the Global South. We are made to view these forms of oppression as competing for our attention, as though fighting one precludes fighting others. In fact, capital relies on this misconception and these systems of domination for its lifeblood. We need to strengthen and expand our partnerships with organizations already engaged in these fights and commit ourselves to campaigns that directly confront the mechanisms of racism and oppression—fighting bias and discrimination, segregation in our housing and schools, the violence of our borders, and our deeply racist system of mass incarceration.

We understand that these systems which stretch across the globe are not the result of individual failings of a particular group of people, but a powerful structural force within our society. Within our organization and across the whole working class, when we encounter people who hold oppressive ideas, it is incumbent on all of us to address them, striving to educate, radicalize, and include, rather than censure and push out. However, as we seek to build a multi-racial, working-class mass movement, we must do the hard, daily work to ensure our organization is a welcoming place for all. We must commit to addressing oppressive behaviors and making their targets whole. Oppressive behavior within the organization cannot be allowed to drive people away or sabotage a growing multi-racial, multi-gendered, multi-generational, movement for radical change.

6) Socialist feminist praxis informs our organizing and organizational culture.
Our organizing practice should recognize that all members of the working class have multiple identities, including gender, sexual attraction, race, ability, and others, that shape their experience of oppression. Building a socialist majority will require consciously building bridges across the divisions that various forms of oppression have created.

Collective liberation is not only a value, but an action. It is the how and the what of our work. We call for unity through feminist-informed and intersectional practice that empowers socialists in our movement who have been historically marginalized. We seek to build a movement that embodies the democratic will of the majority while uplifting and empowering those who have been most oppressed and exploited. We recognize the importance of relationships and communities and realize that we are not just individuals defined by our struggle against our oppression, but also by our vision for a new world and commitment to support for one another.

We recognize that sexism, misogyny, and patriarchy have unique histories and causes that cannot be explained fully by capitalism. Addressing economic inequality alone cannot solve these problems, but economic exploitation is a thread that unites all people who experience these and other forms of oppression. Fighting sexual harassment in the workplace is just as much a part of our struggle as challenging non-gendered exploitation. Our diverse identities and experiences inform our organizing to create a more just and democratic world. Class solidarity can build bridges to unite working people across the spectrum of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual attraction, and modes of labor.

We reject corporate, “lean-in” feminism that seeks to build power through social inequality, exclusion, and classist hierarchies designed to divide us. As socialists we must be on the front lines fighting against state-sanctioned and institutional violence disproportionately afflicting poor women, women of color, mothers, migrants, sex workers, and transgender and queer comrades. When we work together across these socio-historical barriers, we strengthen our organizing through informed and effective connections. Socialist feminism is the future.

7) DSA works most effectively in coalition with organized progressive and working-class groups.
Millions of working people across the country are fighting for their own interests by organizing themselves in groups like labor unions, tenant and neighborhood associations, and other community organizations. DSA should build strategic and sustainable relationships with these organizations by campaigning for working-class demands and should also foreground the structural analysis that connects disparate issues to a democratic socialist program.

Millions of working people across the country are fighting for their own interests by organizing themselves in groups like labor unions, tenant and neighborhood associations, and other community organizations. The tensions of working in coalition with groups that may not fully share our politics are very real, but isolation is not an option—DSA should strive to be an organized, democratic, accountable and effective partner with working-class and progressive organizations.

Our work with coalition partners cannot be aimed primarily at recruiting their members to DSA or the socialist movement and we cannot take credit for their organizing work. Instead, we have to bridge our work and tendencies through the shared labor of campaigning for working-class demands. Our work, though, should include a structural analysis that connects disparate issues under the socialist banner. In some cases, in some communities, and around certain issues, we will play a supportive role. In other cases, DSA will lead. In either case, joining coalitions will show that we are serious organizers—whether through strike solidarity, disaster relief, campaigning for health care, resisting police brutality, fighting for environmental justice, or working in an electoral coalition to elect left candidates. We can win the respect of others and a hearing for our political ideas. Unity of program should emerge from unity in struggle, not vice versa.

8) Socialists should engage the labor movement at all levels to build a united, fighting working-class movement.
Building a militant, progressive and democratic labor movement is a central task for socialists. DSA members have a wide variety of roles to play, including organizing as members of the rank-and-file, as union staff or officers, in our own non-union workplaces, and in targeted strategic industries. All labor movement work that advances our class struggle is important to building a socialist majority.

The U.S. labor movement is weak, with only 11% of the workforce represented by labor unions, and under sustained attack by corporations and their political cronies. At the same time, the 14.7 million workers in unions represent an enormous source of potential power. Signs of a renewed labor movement have already begun to emerge, most notably in the recent massive teacher strikes from West Virginia to Los Angeles.

A central task of DSA is to help to build a militant, progressive, and democratic labor movement that fights not only for satisfactory conditions in individual workplaces or industries, but fights in the interests of the working class comprehensively. Labor has the unique capacity to target capitalists at the heart of their power. To radically transform society, our contribution to the labor movement must carry a democratic socialist theory of change and vision for the future.

DSA members can organize in a number of ways in support of labor. Our members will work unionized workplaces and make those unions more powerful. Our members will organize their workplaces and build unions where there were none. In some cases, we may vie for formal power within existing unions, and in other cases, we may work with progressive union leadership. And regardless of where we work, we will find strategic ways to support unions in our communities. That includes emphasizing the need for a united working class in opposition to racism, sexism, reactionary nationalism, and anti-immigrant sentiments and policies. It also means pushing unions to fight for the entire working class, rather than their own parochial agendas, and using every fight as an opportunity to agitate against the capitalist system and explain the need for socialist transformation.

9) DSA can and should be the face of the democratic socialist electoral movement growing across the country.
The electoral campaigns of Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and other democratic socialists at all levels of government have engaged millions of working people in discussion of socialist demands, and have played an important role in DSA’s growth. Electoral campaigns should be a key part of DSA’s strategy to forge a socialist majority.

Nothing could be clearer in the wake of the Sanders campaign and the Ocasio-Cortez victory than that electoral work is one of the socialist movement’s most powerful tools for elevating issues, winning concessions, and mobilizing a left base. We have seen that a serious left-wing electoral strategy can win real victories and DSA must seize this opportunity. Electoral work is one tactic, among others, for taking power that we must develop it for all it is worth.

No individual politician will lead our movement or save the working class. DSA should focus its electoral efforts on developing the capacity of the organization to develop and nurture socialist candidates for office, move mass numbers of voters to the polls, and engage mass numbers of people between election cycles in the fight for bold democratic socialist demands.

We should not be afraid to exploit the Democratic ballot line when it is the best option for our candidates to win, as is usually the case in the contemporary political landscape. Regardless of the ballot line they run on, however, we want elected officials and candidates who will use their positions to be the political arm of a movement in which everyday people can help determine how their world is governed.

Even our smallest and newest chapters, with the support of the national organization, have the capacity to recruit socialist candidates and run effective local campaigns, electing the next generation of democratic socialist political leaders. DSA members must experiment and strategize depending on local conditions, developing an intimate understanding of local election laws, demographics, partisan affiliations, and coalition opportunities. With our faith vested in bottom-up, democratic political action, we can lay the foundation for a nationwide socialist political strategy, and eventually a new democratic socialist majority.

10) We will strive to practice solidarity with each other, even in disagreement, in a way that transforms us as individuals and strengthens us as a collective.
Comradely conversation and debate over ideas, tactics, and strategies is the lifeblood of a democratic organization like DSA. Toxic or factionalized disagreement fails to change minds and fails to move our work forward. We want to uphold norms of debate, of democratic governance, and of communication that prioritize treating one another as comrades in mutual struggle rather than adversaries to be torn down.

Our strength lies in our big tent, our democratic culture, and our grassroots membership. We believe that it is necessary to engage with each other’s ideas in a way that makes us stronger as individuals and as an organization. We have to ask questions and listen. We have to manage our disagreements. Debates, even heated ones, should be welcomed and approached as a shared task that can strengthen our work. However, we have to take care to not let disagreements become toxic, or to begin othering, shunning, or demonizing those whose political perspectives differ from our own.

Unhealthy infighting cannot be solved exclusively by procedure. We have to establish and foster better norms and collective habits and commit to community agreements of generosity, tenderness, and collaboration. We should always start from a place of assuming the best of our comrades.

We trust that every member of this caucus will lead by example. We hope to engage in serious debate about the path of our organization, while eschewing behavior that breeds factions,, bullying, or reflects badly on the organization. We intend to practice solidarity, mutual responsibility, and comradeliness with one another. Even where we have irresolvable differences, we must recognize that those who disagree may be rivals but never enemies. believe in DSA’s big tent and in honoring democratic processes. At the end of the day, whatever our disagreements, we rely on the wisdom of our membership to set our course.
