The Smith Democrats have been recognized over the past several years as one of the most active college Dems groups in the country. We consistently have over 600 students on our mailing list, and dozens of members who go canvassing and phonebanking for Democratic candidates across the nation. We’ve worked as locally as Northampton and as far as Michigan, Missouri and Texas. In addition, we bring a number of speakers every year; these have included Mara Rudman, Michael Ratner, and Madeleine Kunin, as well as numerous candidates and elected officials. During the 2008 presidential election we worked in various states and talked to thousands of voters…and made it back from Northern New Hampshire just in time for the victory party! In 2009-2010, we took twenty Smithies to march on Washington, DC as part of the National Equality March. We also worked in five states for fifteen candidates in four election cycles, and are capping off the year by hosting the College Democrats of Massachusetts state convention, an opportunity for college Dems across the state to come together and talk about how to create a blue-er America. We meet every Monday at seven p.m. in the Campus Center, and look forward to meeting new members!
