It’s About Our Values

The GOP has long tried to make faith a divisive issue in our country, but as CDA Faith Caucus Chair John McCarthy points out, true progress can be made only when we recognize a common message. Here's what he has to say:

It’s about the values we share. All major religions share a common message of caring for each other and protecting those living on the margins of society. Yet we currently stand at a crossroads that requires Democrats of Faith to not only speak up—but to organize.

The Extreme Right has operated under the assumption that they speak for all people of faith. For decades they’ve used tried to sell a message to the American public that Democrats are waging a ...

CDA Serves: Organizing for a Good Cause

On Election Day, young Americans proved themselves to be a powerful voting bloc. They registered thousands of voters and spoke out about issues that matter most to college students and recent graduates, from marriage equality to student loan reform. Young Americans, who accounted for 19% of voters on November 6, have no doubt solidified themselves as grassroots organizing superstars, but those efforts cannot end once the election cycle ends.

College Democrats will certainly continue to support President Obama’s policies in his second term; but we will also be using our appetite for organizing and commitment to Democratic ideals to help us carry out service projects in our respective communities ...

A study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reveals that "young people between the ages of 13 and 24 represent more than a quarter of new HIV infections each year (26 percent)." These statistics are jarring, but what is most shocking is the fact that these ...
