Young Progressives Demanding Action (YPDA) is building a permanent progressive movement on college campuses, fighting for justice.

We are composed of young progressive organizers linked to Progressive Democrats of America (PDA), activists whose primary goal is to advance the progressive agenda in Washington.

We are focused on the progressive platform that unites us, a living people’s platform.

We organize, agitate, and influence through an inside outside strategy that necessitates students and their political power.

We agitate for progressive change through persistent disruption of the flow of politics as usual.

We influence through a seat at the table.
