In order to become an official voting member of DSA San Luis Obispo, you must be a dues-paying member of the national Democratic Socialists of America. Dues are pay-what-you-can, but we recommend the $10 per month dues plan, as a portion of monthly dues go directly to the chapter to support our local organizing. All dues plans give you the same type of membership. You can pay your national dues here
Once you join DSA, you will receive a welcome email from the national organization. Forward that to firstname.lastname@example.org
to get added to the chapter Slack Workspace. Slack is our official internal communication platform and is the main place for organizing conversations and planning in between meetings. Then, check our our current campaigns, register for a meeting, or come to a social event!
Just because our chapter is not involved with something does not mean we are not interested in it. We only have so many people with so much time, and we have to make choices about what we can commit to. We always want to be doing more, but we want to do it well. We invite any member to take up areas of work we’re missing and help lead our chapter. As a democratic organization, a member is always empowered to bring up things that they think the chapter should consider, and to try to persuade and move people in a direction.
