We are revolutionary Marxists who believe that the impending threat of climate change will necessitate the complete overthrow of the existing social order in order to usher in a socialist mode of production. To make this possible we must organize to build structures and a mass movement ready for that challenge.

We understand Marxism as the application of a materialist analysis rather than a static set of rules, and as a tool for understanding and organizing the world around us.[1]

Statement on Anti Blackness in the DSA

Statement on Anti Blackness in the DSA was released in February 2021:

We as the AfroSocialist and Socialists of Color Caucus stand in solidarity with the Black woman in DSA North Texas who was wrongfully suspended by DSA North Texas Co-chairs. This action by the DSA North Texas Co-chairs is racist and in particular anti-Black. This is not an isolated incident of racism but represents a pattern of anti-black and white supremacist actions within DSA which must be acknowledged, held accountable and systematically rooted out. There is a pattern of anti-black behavior that stems from the founding of DSA North Texas that has led to each generation of Co-chairs either perpetuating or being complicit in anti-black racism.

Signatories included Margo Gislain Chicago Democratic Socialists of America .[2]
