Becoming a Member of Socialist Action 

Socialist Action is a growing revolutionary group of activists dedicated to helping lead a working class revolution in the United States. We seek to popularize and spread the ideas of revolutionary Marxism, while at the same time working with and helping to develop the social movements of workers, students and the oppressed. Through our political program, our experience, and the dedication of our comrades, we are confident that we have something very important to offer the coming American revolution, and we invite you to join us in helping that revolution come about.

Membership in SA is open to open to anyone who is in general agreement with our program, commits to being an active member of the organization, and agrees to abide by majority decisions.

If you are interested in joining Socialist Action, we encourage you to contact the SA branch nearest you. The local branch organizer will meet with you and get you on the path to becoming a member. For a directory of branches, please contact our National Office.

If you live in an area where we don’t have a branch, we usually ask that you start working with us as a supporter until the time when we get to know you and are able to send an organizer to meet with you. Supporters are asked to distribute our newspaper and literature, keep in touch with our National Office, and read through an introductory packet of literature.

We’ve put up on this site the text from our Membership Handbook, which summarizes our party’s program and outlines what it means to be a member.

Becoming a Supporter of Socialist Action
Keep in mind, if you feel that membership is not right for you right now, for whatever reason, we still encourage you to contact our party about becoming an active supporter. There are numerous ways to support the work of Socialist Action, from financial contributions to volunteering to help us with our campaigns and distributing our newspaper. It takes a lot of work to build a mass revolutionary party, and we sure could use you!

For those looking to have a relationship with Socialist Action short of membership, we have a Socialist Action Supporters Club.  For $100 a year, members get a first class subscription to Socialist Action newspaper, a subscription to Resistance! e-zine, special political updates, and a 10% discount on all books and pamphlets from Socialist Action Books.

If you would like to become a part of the Socialist Action Supporters Club, or make some other regular donation to the party, please contact our National Secretary, Jeff Mackler at or at (510) 268-9429.
