Tidewater DSA Endorsement 



We are excited for the Tidewater DSA’s endorsement because our goals and philosophies are very much aligned--giving power back to the working class, advocating for social change, putting people over profits--and we are stronger together. We are working hard to break up the duopoly and people’s ties to the idea of “Blue no matter who,” and, as a third party we understand and appreciate the strong groups and networks like the Democratic Socialists who have put in the work. We are honored to be endorsed by a group with a history of activism and anti-capitalist ethos. Our power is in unity and working with like-minded organizations to dismantle the two-party system and to ensure that liberation is a human right, not a privilege for all Virginians.
