What is New Students for a Democratic Society?

New Students for a Democratic Society is a national, multi-issue progressive organization of student activists who fight for change on campus. We were refounded in 2006 in the wake of the antiwar demonstrations against the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and we haven't stopped since.

Our goal is to build a student movement that mobilizes students against crimes against the people committed here at home and on other peoples abroad.
