CCDSA Values

We know that CT is the richest state in the world’s richest country as well as one of the most unequal places in America.

We believe that the only way ordinary people can achieve genuine freedom is by building an organized, multiracial, working-class majority capable of confronting the ruling class and developing collective power in the workplace, the community, the state, and the environment we share. Members of the working-class majority include all people who sell their labor to the capitalist class in order to live—as well as those even more deeply exploited: the unemployed, the undocumented, and the incarcerated. Our core values include:

  • Economic Equality and Working-Class Power
  • Racial Justice
  • Gender / Sexual Liberation

We recognize that resisting and ultimately dismantling capitalist exploitation and imperialist warfare requires us to draw together all people organizing against intersecting forms of oppression. We demand a radical redistribution of wealth, resources, and power.
