Young Democratic Socialists of America at UCLA

Young Democratic Socialists of America at UCLA Logo

Young Democratic Socialists of America is the youth and student section of the Democratic Socialists of America, and a national organization of recognized campus chapters and several hundred activists. We are students organizing in our universities, colleges, and high schools to fight for the immediate needs of workers and students while building our capacity to fight for more radical and structural changes. YDSA fights for democratic socialism through active campaigns that challenge capitalist exploitation and oppression. We support organized labor by joining picket lines and joining unions. We organize to defend immigrants through campaigns for sanctuary campuses. We engage in strategic electoral work with candidates who will fight for the working class. We campaign to divest our schools from fossil fuels. We do anti-poverty work through local mutual aid programs in our communities, and much much more. We also provide peer-led political education and organizer training programs to sharpen our skills and analysis. The Democratic Socialists of America is the largest socialist organization in the United States. We believe that working people should run both the economy and society democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few.
