The Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) were a nationwide student organization, representative of the New Left in the 1960s. The group pushed for, among other things, racial and sexual equality; an end to the police state, the draft, and war; democratized universities; labor rights; and poverty justice. SDS had hundreds of chapters across the United States, but they splintered over just how radical to be. The name was relaunched in 2006 as a new left-wing
student group.
