The GSAN logo: green flames extend from a graduation cap that reads, "GSAN"

About Us

The Graduate Student Action Network (GSAN, @GradAction on Twitter/Instagram) is a growing network of graduate students at over 50 schools in 30 U.S. states, started in June 2022 in response to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson. Members include grad student government and union representatives, officers of campus advocacy groups and clubs, and other students passionate about defending their peers' rights. GSAN’s goal is to empower students to make and demand change for reproductive justice, LGTBQIA+ rights, wages and healthcare, anti-racism, climate justice and sustainability, anti-Imperialism and Indigenous struggles, and more, through student organization and activism. GSAN collaborates with partners including the Young Democratic Socialists of America (YDSA) and chapter leaders of nationwide med student and law student advocacy groups. Any student is welcome to join GSAN using the join button below. After signing up, you will be invited to join our Discord server, attend our quarterly Zoom meetings, access our collection of example bargaining materials (slides, reports), and vote in our collective decision-making processes (one person, one vote).
