The Young Democratic Socialists (YDS), the youth section of the Democratic Socialists of America, continues to play a crucial role in convening young democratic socialists and engaging them in the day-to-day struggles of working people and the fight for a better future.

This summer, YDS is hosting a special conference in the DC area to bring together young socialists and other progressive students inspired by this moment in history. The conference will discuss how best to keep the energy generated in this election season going and build networks of democratic socialist campus groups. We are raising funds to support attendance at this conference and strengthen the student left.

Please join us, the alumni of DSA/DSOC youth sections, YDS, and other student and youth organizations for a trip down memory lane, refreshments, and comradeship as we support a new generation of democratic radicals building a better world.
