The goals of the AU College Democrats are as follows:

  1. To help elect strong, effective, and experienced Democrats who will represent the nation and prioritize the needs of the people rather than the party
  2. To push Democratic values and ideals to the members of our organization
  3. To shape the future of the Democratic Party
  4. To advocate on behalf of those who may not have the ability, experience, or resources to do so
  5. To provide American University students with crucial resources and opportunities to get involved with the Democratic Party and the political realm
  6. To push for more inclusion, discussion, representation, and progress within the Democratic Party
  7. To stand up to and hold accountable a dangerous administration, and fight for the silenced

  • Knocked on 7,000 doors
  • Made 15,000 phone calls
  • Sent members to House Districts throughout Virginia 
  • Helped gain Democratic Majority in the House of Delegates
