🎉Want to help Democrats win in the #2020Election? Join @GUCollegeDems to phonebank for Mark Kelly, our Democratic candidate for Senate in Arizona. This will be a critical race to take back the Senate in 2020, and phonebanking is a great way to make an impact!

Come to Reiss 112—we’ll be there from 7-9, but you don’t need to stay the whole time. No experience necessary (but we will be training new phonebankers starting at 6:45)! Plus, there’ll be pizza! 🇺🇸

🇺🇲"The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude" -- Section 1, Article 15, U.S. Constitution

Today marks the 150th anniversary since the ratification of the #15thAmendment, a major expansion of voting rights in the U.S. But, as these voting rights are under attack, it is more important than ever to get involved and vote for representatives who will protect everyone's right to vote. #BlackHistoryMonth #SuffrageCentennial #GeorgetownDemocrats #ElectDemocrats

To the members of GUCD, the Georgetown community, and and beyond:

On Friday, February 1st, the Georgetown University College Democrats released a brief statement following the uncovering of Governor Ralph Northam’s extremely racist yearbook photo. Since then, the Executive Board has created a longer formal statement condemning his actions, as well as the actions of Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax.

Hey GUCD! My name is Emily Walling (pronouns she/her/hers), and I’m the Director of Alumni Relations & Advancement! I’m a freshman in the College majoring in Theology, and I’m super excited to be doing today’s social media takeover!
Three fun facts about me: 1) I’ve been a dancer for over 13 years and currently dance in BMDT here at Georgetown. 2) I absolutely hate the cold despite the smile in this photo (like seriously a lot, this snow is not for me). 3) I currently work for Campus Ministry and hope to work in ministry myself someday!
GUCD to me is a place where I can have conversations with other progressives and be an active member of our democracy. It’s so important for young adults to be aware of what’s going on in our politics, and GUCD is helping me do my part.

General information

2020 Executive Board Chair: AJ Williamson Advocacy Director: Christopher Boose Director of Campaigning: Jacob Denninger Treasurer: Emma Vail Speakers Director: Hannah Kosc Communications Director: Jordan Westendorf Alumni Relations and Advancement Director: Hannah Bomberg Membership Director: Warren Glisk Georgetown University College Democrats is the largest and most active student group on campus. We aim to champion Democratic and progressive causes both on the Hilltop and in the greater community. On campus, we spread awareness of important issues across our campus and promote political engagement in student life. You can find us tabling in Red Square to participate in one of our letter or photo campaigns or come to one of our advocacy trainings. We witnessed President Obama's historic speech in Gaston Hall. We have hosted some incredible speakers, including former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Representative Pramila Jayapal, Senator Tammy Duckworth, and Terry McAuliffe. We also have hosted panel discussion on issues ranging from labor justice to the environment. We have registered scores of new student voters and helped them get absentee ballots. We have also hosted internship fairs and career workshops for our members, and we regularly engage with the College Republicans in debates and roundtable discussions. In addition, GUCD members are active in the greater community. In the past few years, we have led the fight to elect Democrats up and down the ballot, from President Barack Obama to the Virginia House of Delegates. We made trips to Kentucky, Virginia, Georgia, and New Jersey to campaign for gubernatorial and congressional candidates. We also attended press conferences on the Hill to advance student aid and health care. We've volunteered at soup kitchens, planted trees in the community, and attended rallies for equal rights. Join us this semester! Follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to stay updated on what we do.
