About Us

Lawrence KS DSA and KU YDS chapters have been organized since 2017. Come to a meeting and see what we’re about!

Who are the Democratic Socialists of America?

The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States. We’re not a political party but a group of activists working together towards a more free, democratic, and humane society.

The Young Democratic Socialists, the youth wing of the DSA, is made up of students at universities, colleges, and high schools across the country.

Who are we?

The Lawrence DSA was founded by local workers and students. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, or via email at contact@lawrencedsa.com.

Our Chapter Bylaws

Our chapter bylaws were drafted in Spring 2018. After a chapter-wide discussion at our General Meeting, the Steering Committee drafted our members’ ideas into the first draft which was then taken to the general membership. After rounds of discussion and changes, the bylaws were provisionally adopted at the General Meeting on July 2, 2018. You can read our bylaws here and you can see a list of all of our working groups here.
