"The youth of today are not naive because of their idealistic views. The younger generations simply embrace the social values that were instilled in them by their parents. Those values are American Socialist values."
★ American Socialists
Students and young Americans have long been inspired by socialist ideals, and have played an important role in the Socialist Party. While millennials represent our next generation of leaders, they realize that America canâ€™t wait to tackle Americaâ€™s foremost challenges.
Every year, student activists proclaim socialist ideals on college campuses across the country. They work tirelessly to coax their fellow students to become more active and engaged, and helped foster greater political involvement. Alongside older American Socialists, the young millennial Socialists are driving discussion and organizing on some of the most important issues facing young Americans today, including racial equality, college affordability, campus sexual assault policies, expanding access to health care, and tackling the threat of climate change.
Young people have great opportunities to become more active with local and national Socialists, and to help shape the Socialist Party into a responsive party for the 21st century.
American Socialists believe that everyone should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, which means breaking down social and economic barriers.
