The Activist is the official blog of Young Democratic Socialists. Because of the massive growth DSA and YDS have experienced, we’re remaking The Activist as a more organized and active part of YDS. Until now, The Activist has been a great forum for opinion within DSA, and that’s a role we want to preserve, but we also want to focus on expanding our journalistic coverage of DSA and the left more broadly.
To build a publication that will be able to consistently do great reporting, we need you! Your role can be as large or as small as you’d like, from contributing an article once to joining our editorial board. Writing for us is a great way to get some experience with journalistic writing and The Activist has been the launching pad for the careers of many great leftist writers.
