Lindsey Smith


Lindsey A. Smith was in 2015, the Memphis contact for Progressive Student Alliance.[1]

She is a junior-ish at the University of Memphis in Memphis, Tennessee. She began her studies in classical clarinet performance, but after taking a long hiatus and rediscovering herself as a passionate activist and organizer, she now studies Philosophy with an intent to go to law school, with the hope that she will be able to help change this patriarchal, imperialist state in which we live. She currently fights with the Progressive Student Alliance (USAS Local 68) — alongside workers, faith groups, and community — for a living wage in Tennessee, as well as the fight against police brutality and the privatization of education, among other campaigns. Lindsey defines herself as a sexually fluid, working class woman and takes the pronouns she/her. When activating self-care, Lindsey dances with a non-profit modern dance collective, Project: Motion, and she loves to spend time in the sun with her dog and her fellow USASers.[2]

Now What? Defying Trump and the Left's Way Forward was a phone in webinar organized by Freedom Road Socialist Organization in the wake of the 2016 election.

Now what? We’re all asking ourselves that question in the wake of Trump’s victory. We’ve got urgent strategizing and work to do, together. Join Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson of the Movement for Black Lives and Freedom Road, Calvin Cheung-Miaw, Jodeen Olguin-Taylor of Mijente and WFP, Joe Schwartz of the Democratic Socialists of America, and Sendolo Diaminah of Freedom Road for a discussion of what happened, and what we should be doing to build mass defiance.
