Activism & Organizations
Democracy Works: This is a non-profit organization that is trying to make the election process more accessible to the modern day voter. They have several resources including: TurboVote (a website that will send you reminders to vote) and Ballot Scout (a service that makes voting through absentee ballots much easier and more reliable). They also research new voting technologies to improve our current system. You can join them or donate to the cause on their website.
DSA: The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the US. They are working to weaken the stronghold corporations have on our government and to empower the working class people of America. Three reforms at the heart of their cause are: getting money out of politics, empower people in the workplaces and the economy, and working toward gender and cultural equality. They are not a political party, but a group of political activists.
YDS: The Young Democratic Socialists of America (YDS) is a subsidiary of DSA aimed at getting high school and college students involved in the progressive movement. If you're interested in starting a chapter at your high school or university, this is the site to use.
Green Party: This is an independent political party that advocates for non-violence, ecological responsibility, social justice and grassroots movements. Their website is a good source for anyone looking to find out more about the ideology of the Green Party and how to get involved.
