Engage Strategically

Camila Vallejo, student leader in the pro-democracy movement in Chile, discusses the need for young people to engage the political process strategically, including the hard work of organizing within political parties committed to social justice. As young people in the US face the electoral choice between false promises and real threats, Vallejo offers an alternative to pious posturing and despair. If students like Vallejo can keep socialism alive under a right-wing regime in Chile, young people in the US ought to be able to create something more hopeful than the current choice between white collar and white power.
