The Young Ecosocialists decry the ongoing coup in Venezuela being orchestrated by the United States government and its allies. This attack on Venezuela and it's people is an affront to democracy and a blatant act of imperialism and white supremacist foreign policy.
In order to better inform our members on the issue, we have compiled a list of resources that we consider to have important insight on this crisis.
The Young Ecosocialists recently held an involvement fair for caucus members. The recording of that call will be available soon, but here are some priority tasks that we are looking for right now.

The Youth Caucus recently held a caucus-wide by-laws vote on two proposals.
The caucus agreed to restructure the Steering Committee around standing committees -- including Media, Finance, Outreach, and Education.
The caucus also agreed to change it's national name from Young Greens to Young Ecosocialists and will work towards implementing this in the coming months. The official name still remains the "Youth Caucus."
Please join us in extending our congratulations to those who were recently elected:
Alison Bittick, co-chair
Brendan Phillips, co-chair
Aadam Hammond, co-chair
Eric Graf, co-chair
Steph Wild, treasurer

The Youth Caucus Steering Committee voted to support efforts underway in multiple states and caucuses to add a sex work decriminalization amendment to the Green Party US platform. The next cycle of platform amendments will be considered in 2018, though submission of amendments will begin within a few months.
We encourage all Young Greens to engage your local and state parties on this topic, and when specific language arises, to sign on as co-sponsors to the amendment.
Currently, we are signing onto the amendment originally coming out of the Illinois Green Party, though will be suggesting some small edits before it is submitted to the GPUS Platform Committee.
