OUR MISSION

We’re proud to be the largest student organization at GW and the largest chapter of the College Democrats in the country. Our organization hosts a variety of events throughout the year. This includes bringing speakers to campus, engaging in debates, organizing campaign trips, providing community service opportunities, hosting membership events, and partnering with other GW student organizations to foster a civically engaged community. We are proud to be promoting the progressive agenda at GW.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
— Former President Barack Obama
