History of the Young Communist League of the United States
The Young Communist League of the United States (YCL) was the youth wing of the Communist Party of the United States (CPSUA), active in the early 20th century and one of the largest left wing parties in the country at the time. In 1943, the YCL dissolved itself and immediately reconvened as the American Youth for Democracy.
