Atlanta DSA convention

Emahunn Campbell attended the Democratic Socialists of America National Convention in Atlanta, Georgia in November 2007;[2]

Being a black democratic socialist on a predominantly white conservative campus in southwest Virginia is extremely difficult and arduous. This is why it is always a delight to meet up with other socialists from around the country, such as occurred at the recent DSA convention in Atlanta. The convention demonstrated to me the inclusiveness and receptiveness of the organization not only to the plight of workers, but specifically to people of color as well. My six hour drive from Wise, Virginia, was not in vain.

2008 YDS event

On the heels of a strong Young Democratic Socialists turnout at DSA’s 2007 national convention, its winter outreach conference’s success represents another stepping stone for a revived YDS. The conference title, “Be Realistic, Demand the Impossible: Reviving Democratic, Socialist, and Youth Activism,” honored the spirit of the young radicals of 1968 and reflected similar hopes and dreams that continue to motivate young activists forty years later.

On Friday evening February 15, 2008, the conference opened with a panel discussion: “2013 Isn’t Soon Enough: The Anti-War Movement Post-Bush.” The gathering of close to one hundred young activists served both as conference opener and an Iraq Moratorium event. YDS has participated in numerous Iraq Moratorium events (monthly actions to raise awareness against the war in Iraq) since September and the panel showcased our grassroots work on a national stage.

Saturday’s opening plenary, “The Struggle for Racial Justice Under Capitalism,” moderated by YDS Anti-Racism Coordinator Emahunn Campbell, featured Columbia University professor Manning Marable, immigrant rights organizer Monami Maulik, and DSA National Political Committee member and Brown University Professor of Africana Studies Corey D.B. Walker. The speakers addressed the need to connect the struggle for socialism to the fight against racism. Marable analyzed how the origins of capitalism depended on racist ideology; he further contended that a prerequisite for the elimination of racism would be the abolition of capitalism.

US Social forum

In December 2008 Ithaca Democratic Socialists of America presented "Government as an Agent of Social Change" DSA National Director Frank Llewellyn, Young Democratic Socialists David Duhalde, Will Emmons, and Emahunn Campbell, DSAers from Atlanta and elsewhere, and even a representative of the Venezuelan Embassy gathered at the US Social Forum to discuss what governments can do to empower people and share examples.[4]
