Socialist Students is a youth organization that sees the crises of student debt and low wage jobs as being a crisis of capitalism. What is Socialist Students? Student struggles are on the rise in the United States as we face a deepening crisis, and we believe that the only way to fight rising debt and inequality is with an organized movement on the ground. Socialist Students is an initiative launched by student members of Socialist Alternative, the party of Kshama Sawant. We are young people who see the crisis of student debt, the lack of good paying jobs, and our declining living standards as being entirely connected to the crisis of capitalism. We believe that capitalism is a system based on exploitation of the many and profit for a few billionaires and can no longer support the masses of young and working people across the world. We believe in the need for a society that works for all not just the 1%. A socialist system where we have democratic control over our own lives. Socialist Students in the United States stands in political solidarity with Socialist Students (UK)and we seek to build a student movement that fights against attacks on education, racism, sexism, LGTBQ people and other issues that affect students and workers.
