The Olympia Local of the Democratic Socialists of America

We are the local chapter of DSA, the largest socialist organization in the United States. We are working in Olympia and the South Sound to empower working people and create a more free and equal world, whether that is through universal healthcare, housing for all, or strong, democratic unions.

We hold our general membership meetings on the third Saturday of every month, at 4pm at 119 Washington St in downtown Olympia. People who are new to DSA are welcome, but we encourage folks who are interested to reach out to us ahead of time at info@olydsa.org. That way, we can provide some orientation and maybe meet in person head of time, either for a quick meeting over coffee or at one of our monthly socials.

If you would like more information or if you are interested in joining and would like a chance to meet one of our organizers, please contact us at info@olydsa.org.
