Knoxville Democratic Socialists of America is a Tennessee affiliate of Democratic Socialists of America.

Knoxville DSA

In 2015, Travis Donoho, and Jim Orr were steering committee members of Knoxville-Area Democratic Socialists of America.[1]

Working for Bernie

Members of the Democratic Socialists of America organizing committee in Knoxville are working as individuals with local progressive groups to get Sanders on the ballot for the presidential primary.

These petitions are a great organizing tool, and as a result local members are having weekly conversations with people about socialism.

Travis Donoho, of the Knoxville committee, joined the New American Movement when he was just 18 years old, and became a member of DSA when it merged with the Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee in 1982. Travis says that now is the time to recruit people to DSA.

He told me: “There's never been a better time to ask people to join DSA. Bernie is making it okay to talk about democratic socialism. And we haven't seen that in 40 years.”[2]
