All Out for the 2013 SDS National Convention: Oct 11-13th

On the weekend of October 11-13 Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) will be holding our eigth National Convention at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee.

Since our reorganization in 2006, SDS has grown to be the largest anti-war and education rights student and youth organization active in the US today. In the past seven years SDSers around the country have won major victories on their campuses and in their communities fighting tuition hikes and for the right of all people to a good education. We have built large coalitions with other student and youth organizations not only to fight back against attacks on education but also to land serious blows against white supremacy, patriarchy, and militarism.

We continue to move forward towards a bright future.

This October students from around the country will converge on the city of Clarksville to discuss the future of the student and youth movement in the US. Workshops at the convention will cover topics including environmentalism, anti-war, education rights, LGBTQ liberation, feminism and women’s liberation, anti-racism, immigrant rights, national liberation, and more. There will be food, speakers, and music as well.

You can register for free for the convention today by filling out the form below. Although no one will be turned away due to lack of funds, we are taking donations to cover the costs of food, housing, speaker fees, music, etc. and if you can donate it would contribute a lot to making this convention a success (just click on the link below).

Proposed workshop.. Any response?

A few weeks ago I submitted a proposal for a workshop about Grassroots Media, facilitated by members of the Earth First! Journal Collective. We are planning out our schedule for the coming weeks. If you are interested in this, please let us know soon.

We're interested in sponsoring the conference, please contact us

Hello, our organization, the Rosenberg Fund for Children (, would like to explore helping to sponsor the conference. We are a public foundation that gives financial grants to both kids in the U.S. whose parents have been targeted because they (the parents) are progressive activists, and also to youth (under age 25) in the U.S. who have been targeted directly because they are progressive activists themselves. Please contact us at so we can discuss our wish to sponsor.
