College Democrats Header
The College Democrats are a direct route for our fellow students to engage with politics. We instill values of environmental, racial, and economic justice, encourage young people to participate in the American political process, and provide opportunities to work on Democratic campaigns. We also serve as a place to discuss current events, vent about politics, and meet some like-minded people! This semester our focus will turn from election work to local social activism, with several projects to promote the betterment of our community. Projects in the past have included changing the university's student IDs to be compliant in elections and adding voter registration to the move-in process. We also are working on a project with the Iowa Legislature to raise money to get diverse and identity-inclusive books for Ames’ elementary schools. Whether it’s meeting with local politicians, tabling outside of the library, celebrating our love of pizza at our (pre-Covid) watch parties, or door knocking in the dead of winter (donuts included) we always have a good time! The College Democrats is an official chapter of the College and Young Democrats of Iowa, which itself is co-chartered through College Democrats of America and Young Democrats of America.
