We are getting ready with new plans and a new agenda for 2017:

1.  Reform the Party -- it has become apparent to many young Democrats that the current direction of the party is not working, and thus we must change to a more Progressive party that excites and engages voters. 

2.  Fighting the Establishment -- We will be promoting and encourage students to run for their county's Precinct Captain to help influence Executive Committee elections and thus influence party policy.

3.  Progressive Action in CDO -- When it came to recruiting volunteers to help with the 2016 election, the most common reason for refusal from liberally-minded college students was the party's affiliation with Hillary Clinton and our club's relationship with the Clinton Campaign.  The fact of the matter is that students our age overwhelmingly reject the Neo-Liberal policies of Establishment Democrats and we need our state level College Democrats to reflect that in order for College Democrats to remain relevant and effective on campuses across the state.

4.  Resisting Trump & Setting the Framework for 2018 -- Needless to say, resisting Trump & protecting people's freedoms and civil rights will be a large part of plans in the next 4 years.  Part of this will be setting the framework for retaking the legislature.

  • Across the country 33 U.S. Senate and all 435 U.S. Senate seats will be up for re-election.  
  • Additionally, Gov. John Kasich's term will up and he will be illegible for re-election due to term limits, so retaking the Governorship will be a huge win for Ohio!
  • We lost 70% of  state legislatures across the country in November 2016, and even a small group of College Democrats can make a BIG difference when state house and senate seats are usually decided by only one or two thousand votes!

5.  Hunger on Campus -- Outside of politics we have problems at home that need help.  Many people are not aware that hunger is a serious issue at WSU, and one that we are prepared to take on!

Portal Information


Our party was founded on the conviction that wealth and privilege shouldn't be an entitlement to rule and the belief that the values of hardworking families are the values that should guide us.

We didn't become the most prosperous country in the world by rewarding greed and recklessness or by letting those with the most influence write their own rules. We got here by rewarding hard work and responsibility, by investing in people, and by growing our country from the bottom up.
