We would like to congratulate our very own Compass Youth activist Jacinda Ardern on her election as President of the International Union of Socialist Youth (IUSY). She is only the second female President of the organisation so an even more historic victory for feminism.
Jacinda Ardern said she was both humbled and excited by her election. “IUSY plays a huge role as an international platform for youth organisations all over the world. It’s a real privilege to have the chance to play such a significant role in the organisation, particularly having come from such a small country.”
The International Union of Socialist Youth encompasses socialist, social democratic and Labour Party youth organizations from more than 100 countries, and represents over 143 organisations.
