Statement on the HU Resist Occupation

Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America stands in solidarity with Howard University students organizing for greater democratic control of their university.

We are inspired by these students’ call to start a nationwide movement for students to transform their scholastic institutions. This climate of political turmoil is ripe with possibility, and we expect students in the DMV and around the country will follow the example of the Howard University students.

“The bold and visionary demands for the students’ democratic control of Howard University would be revolutionary if won. We call on MDC DSA and community members to support the students’ occupation by donating generously,” said Marge McLaughlin, Chair of Metro DC DSA.

As of today only students and alumni have been invited to participate in the occupation. If the students put out the call to the entire community, Metro DC DSA will mobilize to support.
