CDA Serves: Organizing for a Good Cause

by , Director of Communications, College Democrats of America

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 ...

These statistics are jarring, but what is most shocking is the fact that these ...

Don’t Underestimate the Power of the Youth Vote

Young Americans sent a powerful message on November 6: do not underestimate us. In 2008, young people turned out in record numbers to support then-Senator Barack Obama and the Democratic Party. The GOP counted on this as being an anomaly and assumed that we would all quietly step back out of the political spotlight in 2012. But that didn't happen. In fact, Americans under 30 turned out in even greater numbers than they did in 2008, and they overwhelmingly voted for President Obama.

We are constantly told that our generation is the future of our country, but this statement suggests that our voice does not matter now. It puts our interests and needs on a shelf to be dealt with at ...
