About Us

About Southwest Michigan Democratic Socialists of America

We are a chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America organizing in Michigan’s 6th congressional district (Berrien, Cass, Kalamazoo, St. Joesph and Van Buren counties).

We welcome all to attend our general meetings, working groups and other events. SWMI DSA has a monthly general meeting, and smaller focused working groups that organize around specific issues. A schedule of our upcoming events can be found here.

In the community, SWMI DSA has recently organized around healthcare and housing issues. SWMI DSA members were key in organizing support for the Housing Equity Ordinance in Kalamazoo City. Similarly, SWMI DSA has worked with other local and state groups in the struggle to create an economy and society to meet public needs and not make profits for a few.
