Coast to coast, SDS chapters and allies will arrive to build connections, campaigns, and political clarity in these times of economic crisis, environmental catastrophe, racist, anti-immigrant attacks, and continuing
Through workshops and plenaries, SDS chapters will share their many rich experiences, including helping lead the national struggle for education rights, organizing protests against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, coordinating mass action against Arizona’s SB1070, and boycotting Israel.
Rachel Matteson, of Milwaukee SDS, was one of the 16 arrested during UW-Milwaukee’s March 4th national day of action to defend education rights. She continues to help lead the education rights struggle, and says: “Milwaukee is succeeding in building a strong and committed chapter. We look forward to extending this unity and to the opportunity to learn from the many committed organizers in SDS, to share our experiences and to inspire a new wave of SDS to take up the struggle for revolutionary change.”
SDS is a radical, multi-issue organization grounded in the principles of participatory democracy. With dozens of chapters nation-wide, we encourage newcomers to also attend.
