Democratic Socialists Semester Kickoff
Wednesday, February 3, 2021
8:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
New and returning members welcome! Come hear our plans for the semester, as well as meet some leftists in your community. Bring a friend and get ready to make change. We meet Wednesdays at 8pm in Kirkhof Room 2263.
We are a student organization that believes that working people should run both the economy and society democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, we fight for immediate changes that can help everyday people while also building our coalition to achieve more structural long-term change over time. GVSU YDSA works with Grand Rapids Democratic Socialists of America, regional organizers, and other groups on campus and surrounding areas in order to meet our goals. We use a variety of tactics, from legislative work to direct action, to fight for reforms that empower working people.
We are a multi-issue organization fighting for:
- The abolition of poverty
- Affordable, humane housing for all
- Universal Medicare for all
- Free Education: from pre-k to trade schools, college and beyond
- Democracy in the workplace; all workers have the right to organize
- Complete reproductive freedom in all forms
- An end to racial, gender, and all other forms of oppression
- An end to punitive justice and mass incarceration
- An end to military intervention and police aggression
- Democratic control over the environment to preserve the planet
And More! If any or all of these issues are important to you, please consider checking us out! To join our Slack page to stay up to date, send us an email or download Slack and search gvsuydsa Join Slack
