The American Student Union (ASU) is a national student organization with an anti-imperialist and working-class political orientation. We seek to build a new America—of the people, by the people, for the people, and not for the big capitalists and imperialists. With the decline of American unipolarity and the devastating economic crisis we are in, it is clear that the students of America need solutions. American students find themselves caring for their parents, brothers, and children. They find themselves working multiple jobs for little pay while in school. They find themselves in serious debt and with little future prospects. Facing these titanic struggles, American students, now more than ever, are ready for socialism. The ASU seeks to unite the students of America through peace, jobs, and democracy.
