Welcoming Young Democratic Socialists of Princeton

Image may contain: textYoung Democratic Socialists is happy to welcome our newest Chapter at Princeton University! In their founding statement they highlighted the need on campus for an "organized left" to bring together the variety of progressive campaigns into a cohesive coalition for democratic socialism. They pointed out that "after the election of Donald Trump, a multi-voice, inclusive, and outspokenly left voice on campus" is a necessity to fight back against the right wing and attacks on workers, immigrants, and other vulnerable communities on campus. 

They are planning to hit the ground running in the coming semester. YDS Princeton expressed excitement at attending the "Revolution at the Crossroads" Conference in February in New York on Presidents Day weekend. They plan to have a big turnout at the conference to prepare their chapter to organize for democratic socialism on campus. They have an ambitious plan to support and expand progressive, grassroots campaigns on campus. Campaigns like the Fight for $15, organizing grad students, and fighting to make Princeton a sanctuary school are all ways that YDS Princeton is taking the resistance into their campus.
