Law career

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.[2]

Democratic Socialists of America

On June 13, 2010, Boston Democratic Socialists of America presented its annual Debs-Thomas-Bernstein Award to "two champions of social justice and grassroots democracy, Georgia Hollister Isman and Jack Clark". Honorary Co-Chairs for the event were Massachusetts AFL-CIO President Robert Haynes, State Senator Patricia Jehlen and special guest Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz. Georgia Hollister Isman's award was presented by Andrea Miller of NARAL. Massachusetts AFL-CIO Vice-President Ed Collins and Janet Boguslaw from Brandeis University introduced the other honoree, Jack Clark, who then "entertained and informed us with a brief tour of U.S. Socialist history". David Knuttunen & Susan Davidoff were benefactors of the event.[3][4]

Will Emmons was a supporter of the event.

Supporting David Segal

In 2010 Rhode Island Young Democratic Socialists/Democratic Socialists of America member Will Emmons wrote an article "A progressive campaign on Rhode island" for the Boston Democratic Socialists of America newsletter The Yankee Radical (September) on David Segal's Rhode Island Congressional campaign.[5]

The David Segal campaign is going full steam ahead in the race to succeed Patrick Kennedy as the next Congressman from Rhode Island's First District. Segal, a Green-turned-Democrat former City Councilor and current State Representative, was first considered a long-shot candidate, but has recently shot up in the polls. Organized labor and working people are key parts of his agenda.

I first got to know Rep. Segal when he invited me to speak at a Rhode Island Statehouse lobbying effort against the State purchase of sweatshop-made apparel. He also provided me a couch when I spoke at Brown University on student-labor solidarity. His work has dealt with the full spectrum of progressive issues, from reforming Rhode Island's backwards probation laws, to fighting for public funding of elections, to bringing labor and environmental groups together in a Green Jobs coalition which could establish New England as a hub for green manufacturing. During this wave of Tea Party insurgency, it’s great to see a left-liberal candidate mobilizing young people and activists for social change.

He is running against the Providence machine and needs your support. There are opportunities to volunteer remotely from Boston and in Rhode Island as well. Those interested should contact Will Emmons at...

Will Emmons is a Rhode Island DSA–YDS member active in the Segal campaign.

Will Emmons of Brown University served as the volunteer organizer for the Segal state representative’s re-election campaign.[6]
