Young Democratic Socialists of America
“We are students organizing in our universities, colleges, and high schools, to fight for the immediate needs of students and workers, while establishing action for radical and structural change”
What are our meetings like?
Meetings will consist of open discussion regarding the current sociopolitical climate and its relating anthropology. As well as a continuation of open discussion regarding the books/topics read at the DSA chapter book club. Meetings will also be comprised of planning and organizing student participation in events curated by both DSA and local YDSA organizations. Thus, helping students develop skills that center around political involvement I.e. communicating with state representatives via letters or phone calls, organizing protests, rallies, and fundraisers with respect to international /national conflict.
What do we do?
We are here to help students come together in unity with an intersectional feminist, anti-racist, all-inclusive vision of how to make our local communities thrive. While also informing others of the common struggles all marginalized groups face and creating a safe space in doing so. Young Democratic Socialist are here to serve the community through outreach and offer advocacy to those that need support.
