Local dues pay for everything you see here in Philadelphia, including facilities, equipment, special events, and campaigns. Funds are crucial to our ability to function as a robust, effective chapter, and every penny counts. As much as we may wish otherwise, political organization requires money. Local dues will allow us to continue to grow, develop membership, and contribute to the overall goals of the DSA. By becoming a dues-paying member, you’re helping to prove that effective mobilization can be done democratically, without massive donations or private fundraising.
While local dues help support all of Philly DSA's political work, you do not have to pay local dues to be a member in good standing of Philly DSA.
