Our movement includes people from all walks of life. When designing, remember that we want to expose as many people as we can to the positive possibilities of Democratic Socialism and the DSA.

We want to create an anti-capitalist message that is as inclusive as possible and stands against racism, sexism, xenophobia and all forms of discrimination and for collective liberation.

As Democratic Socialists, we believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few. As such, work created for DSA must consider the various groups it is meant to organize. 

Text Readability

Small fonts (less than 12 pt) and lightweight versions of fonts can be difficult to read.

Color Contrast

Many color combinations can be difficult to read. Low-contrast colors exclude comrades who are colorblind.

Languages & Translation

Many comrades speak/write in English and/or Spanish, but depending on your community, publishing content in another language may be helpful.

Inclusivity

Democratic Socialists come from all walks of life. Some of us have been socialists for years, while others are just beginning their journey. Avoid excessive jargon and define terms the audience may not know.
