Endorsed Sarah Saez
- I’m supporting Sarah Saez because she’s a true reflection of a grassroots labor leader, and that shows she has nothing but the best interest for San Diego working families at heart.
Fight for $15
In 2016 Emiliana Sparaco was California Fight for $15 organizer.
The YCL dissolved circa 2016;
- The Young Communist League USA (YCL) and its many predecessor organizations have a long, proud history of revolutionary activism fighting for working class rights, equality, peace, democracy, environmentalism and socialism.
- Despite its many contributions, the YCL organizational form didn’t fit the new forms of activism of the today’s young generations, their growing interest in socialism and radical change.
- As a result, the CPUSA’s work with youth is being refocused and redoubled.
- The YCL no longer exists as an independent national organization. New organizing structures are being created within the CPUSA to more effectively focus on the issues facing youth and students.
- Young party members are taking on leadership roles and helping change how the CPUSA works. Also, the PeoplesWorld.org is expanding engagement with youth and students, and encouraging them to write, share videos, and help give voice to issues and struggles they are involved in.
- If you were an YCLer, your membership will automatically be transferred to the CPUSA if you are 18 years old or older. Those younger than 18 years old can still participate in all CPUSA activities online or offline.
- If you are interested in working for radical change, learning about Marxism and our vision of socialism USA and how it can be achieved, we urge you to join the Communist Party USA or sign up to receive the CPUSA News and Views Newsletter, and participate in ongoing educational activities and weekly campaigns regardless of your age.
- We urge you to check out www.cpusa.org for all activities and updates.

CPUSA Environmental Action
CPUSA Environmental Action is a Facebook closed group. It is "a meeting place for members and friends of the Communist Party USA to discuss environmental issues (especially climate change), share information, and coordinate activities".
As of June 21, 2017 members included Emiliana Sparaco;
The delegation flew to Russia on the morning of Thursday, Oct. 13 2017. Eight young people organized by the Communist Party USA flew to Sochi, Russia to join over 50,000 youth expected from over 183 countries for the 19th World Festival of Youth and Students (WFYS). Running from Oct. 14-22, this worldwide gathering of young leaders will engage in discussions about how to work together to solve problems of war, racism, inequality, lack of jobs and educational opportunities, and many other urgent issues.
2017’s festival will gather under the slogan “For peace, solidarity, and social justice, we struggle against imperialism – Honoring our past, we build the future!” The festival will also include sports and cultural events to further develop international friendship and solidarity.
Centered around the struggle against imperialism, fascism, and racism, and highlighting the role of the youth in the struggle for gender equality, the 19th Festival will honor the 100th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution and the 70th anniversary of the Festival Movement. It will also honor the memory of Ernesto “Che” Guevara, Fidel Castro, and Mohamed Adelaziz, leader of the Sahrawi national liberation movement against Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara, the last remaining colony in Africa.
Program themes for the 19th Festival were formulated in line with the U.N.’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
On October 1st, CPUSA delegates to the festival held a send-off party in New York City to involve community partners in the Festival Movement. Participating at the event were organizers and activists from the #Fightfor15, the #CLOSErikers campaign, and Black Lives Matter. The conversation was focused on the relationship between racism and imperialism, followed by musical performances.
#CLOSErikers organizer Vidal Guzman said that mass incarceration is another example of “not putting the right investments in the community,” and that “the people closest to the problem are the people closest to the solution.” Another BLM activist requested that the delegates go to the festival to “internationalize the movement” for racial justice in the U.S.
The festival will officially start with a parade commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. Other sections of the program will contain focused discussions on primary issues facing specific regions of the world.
The third day, “America Day,” under the heading “Peace, Justice, Anti-imperialism and People’s Friendship,” features a conference on the refugee crisis affecting many areas of the world and the power of solidarity. The fourth, “Africa Day,” features a conference on “the rise of fascism and anti-communism, racism, and xenophobia.” The next day, “Middle East Day,” focuses on the struggle for free and universal access to health, education, science, culture, and information.
The sixth day, “Asia Pacific Day,” will discuss youth unemployment and the precarious sitation of young workers under conditions of capitalist crisis. Addressing issues in Europe on the seventh day, the participants are scheduled to discuss the development of science and the consequences to the environment. The eighth day, “Russia Day,” spotlights the host country and includes sessions on securing access to water and opposing its privatization. A separate seminar will focus on opposition to falsify the history of World War II and attempts to equate communism and fascism.
Additional seminars will be held each day on subjects such as how to confront precariousness and youth unemployment, the role of youth in the struggle for gender equality, climate change, food sovereignty and health, and other issues.
Throughout the festival, there will be exhibitions on the Soviet Union, the victory against Nazism in 1945, the lives of Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, and Mohamed Abdelaziz, and the 6th and 12th World Youth Festivals held in Moscow.
A “Regional House” (Casa Americas) will also be organized to engage in social issues and expressing solidarity with Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and Cuba through book presentations, videos, speakers, music, and poetry. Cameron Orr will be giving a looping violin performance during this component.
The festival will also feature an “Anti-Imperialist International Court,” where charges are expected be brought against imperialist forces for terrorism, economic blockades, environmental destruction, and war.
