CUNY Social Forum Panel by Students for a Democratic Society
CUNY Social Forum Panel by Students for a Democratic Society...October 19, 2008 City College of New York.
Moderator: Robyn Tang
- CUNY has a long history of struggle, which has never just emerged within CUNY itself, but has been connected and a part to the greater New York Community and the politics of its time. How can we learn from the struggles of our communities in the past & today, of students throughout the New York Public Education System, and connect that to the possibility of building a radical student movement with organic roots in our communities? Students for a Democratic Society members look at what are our possibilities, what our duties as politically conscious students are, and what kind of transformation we want to see.
Students for a Democratic Society re-emerged as a new organization in 2006. Since then, SDS has grown into a national organization with over a hundred chapters and thousands of members.
