Why I'm in USAY: I'm in USAY because USAY is like Batman, and the rest of Yale is like the rest of the Justice League. We're here to assemble the whole team, to show that we aren't afraid, and to show that we can accomplish anything if we do it together. I'm here because I believe progress isn't inevitable, and it takes the work of groups like ours that connect people together in solidarity against immoral action and in pursuit of improving flawed institutions to make sure progress is achieved.
