Our story


It all started when A Democratic Socialist re-inspired young people to get involved in the political process...

We are the Hawaiʻi chapter of Young Progressives Demanding Action (YPDA). Formerly the Oʻahu Students for Bernie Sanders, a student-led organization that campaigned for Senator Sanders during his 2016 Presidential bid, we played a major role in securing 70 percent of the democratic primary vote Hawaiʻi.

Today, YPDA is a national organization with 501c3 status and 27 active and engaged chapters around the country.
