YDSA UTSA founding
On Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017, the Young Democratic Socialists of America at UTSA (YDSA) held a meeting in Study Room 13 in the John Peace Library where they discussed their goals and how to achieve them.
Chance Walker, a freshman geography major, was one of the few students who helped establish the YDSA at UTSA. “We were a very small group until Bernie Sanders ran for President in 2016; at that time, the DSA went from having 6,000 members at the beginning of 2016 to at the end of 2016 we had 20,000 members.” The DSA is currently gaining on 30,000 members.
Catherine Zavaletta, a freshman art history major, is a new member to UTSA’s chapter of YDSA. “I was really interested in seeing what socialism was really about, hearing it first-hand from a socialist versus hearing it from a capitalistic society,” she said. “I understand and agree with the need to push for socialism.”

Had a great May Day with Austin DSA. After a big forum on the teachers' revolt (co-sponsored by Education Austin), we went to the state capitol to protest the Republicans' attempts to prevent Texas cities from passing progressive legislation. I'll be back in Austin this weekend for more hang out time with all these lovely comrades... — with Chance Walker, Marcus Denton, Chris Kutalik Cauthern, Tan-dra Louie, Chau Lan Ngo and David Pinkham.
