Mark your calendars! Start planning your trip today!
The Young Democratic Socialists (YDS) are hosting a national conference in New York City from March 11-13. entitled "When Bush Comes to Shove: Youth Organizing Against Right-Wing and Corporate Power." It will bring together activists from across the country for workshops, trainings, great speakers, partying and more. This is a unique opportunity to meet YDS members and friends to discuss how best to challenge the Bush agenda and build a long-term movement for social justice.
WORKSHOPS & TRAININGS
Conference sessions will cover critical topics ranging from the theory and practice of democratic socialism, feminist politics, challenging right-wing rhetoric, Iraq and U.S. foreign policy, student-labor solidarity, anti-racist organizing, counter-military recruitment, capitalism and the economy, left-wing media, inter-generational activist dialogue, the nuts and bolts of grassroots organizing, chapter building, the future of the left, and more. Workshops and panels will feature activists and trainers working in trade-unions, in the peace movement, in social justice student organizations, as noted progressive scholars, and other voices from the democratic left.
Those who attend "When Bush Comes to Shove" will come away with valuable skills and concrete resources for campus and community organizing, a deeper understanding of systems of oppression and exploitation, a vision of the better world we are struggling to create everyday, and strategies for beating the Bush agenda of corporate greed, endless war, intolerance and cutbacks in needed public programs.
The conference opens with a plenary discussion on Friday evening at 7pm (March 11th), followed by a reception. Saturday will begin at 10:00am and go until an evening panel. There will be a free party open to all conference-goers Saturday night. On Sunday, there will be interactive skills trainings and a closing session in mid-afternoon.
