Movement for a Democratic SocietyJanuary 23, 2008
Movement for a Democratic Society (MDS) is an education and social action organization dedicated to increasing democracy in all phases of our common life. The goal of MDS is the creation of a more egalitarian society in both the political and economic spheres. MDS believes in participatory democracy, the expansion of human rights, universal healthcare, the rejection of discrimination based on race, gender or sexual preference, the preservation of the earth’s environment, the expansion of workers’ rights, a more equitable distribution of wealth, and the rejection of militarism and war as a way of resolving differences among peoples and nations.
I organized the chapter after being motivated by a large (over 2,500) anti-war protest in Orlando, FL on Oct.27, 2007.
Let me know if you need anything else, and if you got any ideas you’d like to share.
Thanks for the support,
