We believe that there is more to politics than just the ballot box. We are anti-capitalists who believe a better world is not only possible, but necessary. We work in solidarity with other community groups to advance our common goals. Come work with us for the good of all!

We strive to practice our democratic socialist principles in every aspect of our work; more information can be found in our bylaws.

(Other guiding documents include: Whatcom DSA Community Guidelines and Rusty's Rules of Order)
