Membership Matters!

We recognize that the popular fashion within today’s society is to avoid membership in all organizations, especially political ones. However if you believe in the ideas of the SDUSA and hope for the establishment of a far more just society than current day capitalist society, please consider joining the SDUSA. Numbers do matter. The larger a organization’s membership and presence, the more power it has to effect change for justice in this world. Without having this presence and strength even the best of intentions and of ideas will wither and die.

In light of this, the SDUSA National Committee has approved a dues discount for new members. Our normal dues are $40 per year. However, we are offering new members an introductory rate of $10 for the first year. We hope this will be an inducement for you to step up and add your name to our membership roster. You would be helping us a great deal in our work, and we would greatly appreciate it.

  1. I suggest that SDUSA start to accept democratic socialists/socialists from outside USA as “Friends of SDUSA members “. I would gladly join you. Some other socialst/democratic socialist think tanks – like Fabian Society, for instance – do it.
    As a socialist, I believe that our dreamof to changing this World into a better and fairerplace are similar around the World, and that we must try to be always in touch with other Associations, no matter from wich country they are.

  2. I don’t think the SD ever had anything like that, i.e., “Friends the SDUSA”. Would this be a non-paying membership? If so, isn’t that really the same a being a Facebook friend? If it’s a true membership, does Paypal handle foreign currency transactions, and are there any regulatory issues with accepting foreign memberships or donations? I don’t know the answers to these questions, but if we can solve them I think “Friends of SDUSA” is a great idea.

  3. Dear Rick:
    I don’t think this would be the same as being a Facebook friend – people involved with Friends of USa could be in touch more frequently and as it would probably has members from several countries we will be promoting discussions that can be of interest to all social-democrats/demnocratic socialists in the Wolrd; people would hear about SDUSA, and that in USA there are a group that is involved with the struggle for a better world and that have the same ideology as many of us. Due to membership, I don’t know American Federal laws, but i’d suggest it could be a paid membership, without the right to vote to SDUSA Direction. And the most important to me is that it could reach foreign people living in USA that can have the same ideology we share…
