Central Arkansas DSA joins other chapters around the US to reject an economic order based on private profit, alienated labor, gross inequalities of wealth and power, discrimination based on race and sex, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo. We share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism, reproductive justice, racial equality and non-oppressive relationships.
