North Jersey is known for our radical art, jazz and visionaries—Walt Whitman, Sarah Vaughn, Philip Roth, Amiri Baraka and many more. But history is made by working people and North NJ DSA wants to reignite our history of rebellion with Socialism for All. From the Paterson Silk Strike of 1913 to the Newark Rebellion of 1967, current BLM protests and the fight for lead-free water, North NJ DSA continues to build on the legacy of working-class organizing in our spirited state. The North Jersey Democratic Socialists of America is a group of dedicated organizers working to cultivate a more equal, just and environmentally sustainable future.
North New Jersey Democratic Socialists of America (NNJDSA) is part of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the largest socialist organization in the United States with over 70,000 members (as of June 2020)! NNJDSA has 1,000 members across Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, Sussex, Union and Warren counties and is growing.
We are socialists because we are opposed to an economy organized for private profit that produces gross inequalities of wealth and power, discrimination based on race and sex, brutality and violence in defense of the status quo and toxic poisoning of our natural resources.
We are socialists because we believe that working people should run both the economy and society democratically to meet human needs—not to make profits for a few.
Now is a critical time for action—during a world pandemic, record levels of unemployment, lack of health care, growing homelessness and poverty and increasing environmental catastrophe. Now is the time to join us in the fight for Medicare for All; racial justice; a Green New Deal; ending poverty and hunger; and a better future for all.
If you want to build a better world—join us!
